  • The benefit may not be used for correspondence courses unless the courses are part of the student's degree plan.

Additional Information

Please note: Your Hazlewood Exemption file must be completed by the Official Census Date (12th class day during Fall/Spring and 4th class day during Summer) as published in the University Calendar in order for the Hazlewood Waiver to be invoked for that semester. When all items are received in the Veterans Affairs Office, your application will be reviewed by the Veteran Affair Coordinator for approval.

The student service fee must be paid when tuition and fees are due to avoid any other charges.
