Registrar's Office

Certifying and Verifying Your Enrollment

To prevent delays in receiving your education benefits, we must certify your enrollment prior to the beginning of each semester or summer session. Please notify the Veteran Certifying Official in the Registrar’s Office following registration each semester to initiate the certification process for the semester. Any registration changes must be reported promptly to the Registrar’s Office.

In addition, if you are receiving education benefits under Chapter 30 or Chapters 1606 or 1607, you must verify your continuing enrollment monthly. This can be done online at https://www.gibill.va.gov/wave/ or by calling 1 (877) 823-2378. Monthly verification cannot be completed any earlier than the last day of each month.

If you choose to attend another institution of higher learning while also enrolled at Willamette University, you may be eligible to combine your enrollment hours to qualify for full-time benefits. Please contact the Veteran Certifying Official in the Registrar’s Office for assistance.

Please notify the Veteran Certifying Official in the Registrar’s Office when you are graduating or otherwise terminating the use of your VA education benefits so that we may properly notify the Department of Veteran Affairs.
