Assisting Vets

At Western Iowa Tech we do all we can to work with our military veterans in furthering their education. Our VA Certifying Official is located on our Sioux City campus in the Admissions/Registration area. Federal/State tuition assistance is processed through your individual Guard or Reserve unit.

Monthly Verification

Chapter 30 and 1606

Veteran students who will receive benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill® (Ch. 30 and 1606) must verify monthly attendance. You have the option of calling in your monthly verification or using the internet to verify.

Chapter 33

Veterans receiving Post 9-11 benefits will need to verify enrollment status monthly after August 1, 2021. This will be a phased process and VA will notify you when you need to begin Verification of Enrollment and how to complete the Verification.
