NOTE: The housing allowance may be reduced based on class start and end dates. Please contact the Veterans Services Office with questions.
Additionally, you must:
- minimum of one-year as a Mass. State resident;
- meet satisfactory academic progress (SAP);
- be accepted into a degree or certificate program;
If you are a Continuing Education student, the State Veterans Tuition Credit may reduce your Financial Aid package.
You will receive at least two notifications from the VA to verify your benefits for the semester. One will state "your tuition and fees have been reported as zero". This is because the UMass Lowell Veterans Services Office initially certifies benefits without submitting tuition and fees to enable students to receive housing allowance and book stipends (a.k.a. MONEY) as soon as possible. The Office will submit a second certification after the add/drop period which will include tuition and fees to complete the process.
After registering for classes each semester, students using Veteran Educational Benefits are required to complete this ‘Certification Request Form'.
