The Office of Veterans Affairs at Texas A&M International University is grateful to assist students who have served and/or are serving in the United States Armed Forces; who wish to enroll in college or those who are currently attending college using any Federal or State Veteran Education Benefits. We also help aid dependents and/or spouses of deceased or disabled veterans through the Dependents Educational Assistance (Chapter 35) or Hazelwood.

Thank you for your service. We are here to assist you as you further your education

Our Veterans Affairs Coordinator provides the following services:

  • information regarding educational benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA)
  • assists in applying for your GI Bill benefits
  • certifies enrollment to the VA for payment each semester attended
