Welcome to the Office of Veterans Affairs
The Texas State University Office of Veterans Affairs assists veterans and dependents by answering questions concerning veteran educational benefits, certifying enrollments for the Department of Veterans Affairs, processing the Hazlewood benefit, and monitoring our students’ degree plans and academic progress as required for their benefits.

Submissions made after Student Business Services (SBS) provides you a bill will not be processed before the bill is due. You will need to make other payment arrangements. Incomplete submissions will be cancelled after the Census date and the student will be required to come into the office to submit a new request for that semester.
