Visit the UWRF Veteran Services Office and fill out your eligibility paperwork. In approximately 6-8 weeks, the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs will send you and UWRF an eligibility form. It is always best to check with your school to make sure they received this document.
Once you register for classes, make sure you visit our office bringing:
___ Copy of your DD-214 (Member 4)
___ 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 that 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 the UWRF financial aid website.
Financial Aid counselors are available to assist at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 715-425-3141.
