UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Our mission is to ensure student veterans, reservists, National Guard, active duty and family members receive university support in achieving academic success.
1. Assisting students receiving their requested educational benefits.
2. Raising awareness of campus resources available to students.
3. Raising awareness of federal and state resources available to veterans.
Apply online for your VA benefit on the VA website: http://www.gibill.va.gov/apply-for-benefits/application/. It is helpful to have your DD-214 on hand while you fill out the application.
Visit the UWRF Veterans Office and fill out your eligibility paperwork. In approximately 6-8 weeks, Wisconsin Departmentof Veterans Affairs will send you and the school an eligibility form. It is always best to check with your school to make sure that they received this document.
Once you register for classes, make sure you visit our office bringing:
___ Copy of your DD-214 (Member 4)
___ VONAPP application
___ Certificate of Eligibility (Federal or State)
___ Complete your Request for Certification of Veterans' Benefits
If you drop or add a class during the semester, you must notify our office. Failure to do so may result in a debt to you.
In compliance with Federal Regulations, UW-River Falls discloses its estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) as defined for and utilized in packaging financial aid awards. This COA estimate is inclusive of both actual charges and other individual personal costs of attending college, so it will not reflect the exact total you see on your bill. In reviewing charges, please note: UWRF includes a textbook rental charge in its fees, offering students a significant out-of-pocket cost benefit.
The various COA estimates can be found at: https://www.uwrf.edu/FinancialAid/PaymentsDisbursements/EstimatedCOA.cfm .
Financial Aid counselors are available to assist by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and by phone: 715-425-3141.
