Veterans Services

Welcome to Veterans Services!

Welcome to UW Bothell! Veterans Services is committed to assisting our veterans as they transition out of the military into academic life. We serve as your liaisons to the Department of Veterans Affairs so that you may receive your educational entitlements in addition to providing you with guidance and resources to foster success.

Veterans Services consists of the Manager of Veterans Services, Veterans Assistants, and UW Bothell’s Vet Corps Navigator. We are located in the Student Success Center in UW1 160 and we look forward to meeting you.

Veterans Services provides assistance to students who are entitled to receive educational benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Whether a student is a new applicant for benefits or has used them at previous institutions, Veterans Services is committed to working in partnership to ensure that the process is simple and well-organized.

As soon as you have registered for classes, the Veterans Services Coordinator will assist you in completing the appropriate forms and will certify your enrollment to the VA automatically on a quarterly basis. They will continue to monitor changes, answer your questions and, if necessary, act as a liaison between you and the VA until graduation.

  • CHAPTER 31 Vocational Rehabilitation

  • CHAPTER 32 Veterans Education Assistance Program (VEAP)

  • CHAPTER 33 Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 (NEW GI Bill)

  • CHAPTER 35 Survivors’ & Dependents’ Educational Assistance Program (DEA)

  • CHAPTER 1606 Montgomery GI Bill Selected Reserve

  • CHAPTER 1607 Montgomery GI Bill Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP)

Adjustment Issues

Readjustment is the process of transition from military service back to civilian life, of understanding what is expected in civilian life and how that differs from the military experience. Read more. Our Student Veterans Association (SVA) is here to assist. Comprised of fellow veterans, they are ready to walk you through any questions that you may have. Please contact Veterans Services if you would like to connect with other vets on campus.
