With a certificate of eligibility in hand, log into your BYU account and complete the Certification Request Form
You will receive email notification when your certification is submitted to the VA. Certifications are processed by the VA in the order in which they are received. Benefits are generally sent shortly after classes begin. The VA will take 4-6 weeks of processing time before benefits can be posted to your account.
BYU will certify your enrollment to the VA for each semester/term it is requested. Only classes which meet general education and major requirements can be certified, with two exceptions:
|VA Classification||Fall or Winter||Spring or Summer Term|
|Full-time||12+ credit hours||6+ credits|
Utah National Guard State Tuition Assistance (STA)
Members of the Utah National Guard are eligible to apply for Utah National Guard State Tuition Assistance. Eligible members are required to apply each semester and are encouraged to apply as soon as they register for classes. Funding is typically not an issue, but due to changes in Federal Tuition Assistance, there has been an increase in the number of students using State Tuition Assistance. For more information about applying for STA or any other questions about the Utah National Guard, contact our on-campus representative:

The BYU Army ROTC department offers two, three, and four year scholarships to students who are eligible. Scholarship winners enroll in ROTC classes and receive leadership training while pursuing a degree in the field of their choice. Scholarships awarded through ROTC pay either the full cost of tuition or room & board. Additionally, scholarship winners receive a tax-free $300-$500 monthly stipend for living expenses and a $600 book allowance each semester. Acceptance of an ROTC scholarship incurs an obligation to serve as an officer in the Active Army or Reserve Component (National Guard/Reserves).
