VA Benefit Forms

If you are using the Post-9/11 GI Bill® and need your Financial Aid early in the term, ASU Student Business Services (SBS) can place an anticipated VA payment on your account.  To avoid creating balances due, students are encouraged to wait until their actual VA payment is received and posted, as the anticipated VA payment amount is only an estimate. This form will go directly to SBS, but please submit it no earlier than two weeks prior to the beginning of the term. Follow instructions on the form and allow up to 5 business days for processing.  Questions on processing can be emailed to

Anticipated Payment Request

This form contains important information regarding the use of VA benefits throughout your school enrollment. Complete the online form — it will submit directly to the Pat Tillman Veterans Center.

Look for next steps via your MyASU page once you are enrolled in classes.

Benefits Responsibility Form

This form notifies the Pat Tillman Veterans Center if you do or do not want to use VA education benefits for the upcoming semester. When you elect to use your benefits, your enrollment information will be sent to the VA and ASU Student Business Services will place a tuition deferment on your student account for that semester.

If ASU is your parent school and you are taking courses at another school (supplemental school) that apply to your ASU degree program, and you would like your VA benefits to support courses at both schools, complete this form. This verifies that the courses you’re taking at the supplemental school apply to your degree program at ASU. Complete this form with your advisor. Follow instructions on the form for processing.

Concurrent Enrollment Form

Students using VA educational benefits are generally approved for only one program of study at a time. However, exceptions can be made for students pursuing two programs at the same school if they can provide reasonable justification that both programs apply to a single career field. The dual objective may include two majors, two degrees, two certificates, or two programs on different professional/technical levels.  Follow instructions on the form for processing.

Students should have this process and form completed by the end of their first semester.

Prior Credit Evaluation Form

Students using VA educational benefits normally receive payment only for classes within their degree program and allowable electives that count towards graduation requirements. However, students in their graduating semester are allowed to take additional core classes if they don’t have enough required courses to put them at full time. Students are allowed earn their full stipends by “rounding out” their class schedules in their final semester, even though fewer credits would be needed to meet graduation requirements. To have extra classes approved under Round Out, follow the instructions on the form for processing.
