Step 3: Sign Up for New Student Orientation (NSO) & Enroll in Classes
We cannot process your benefits until you are enrolled in classes, which cannot be done until you have attended NSO.
Try to get the earliest orientation available. There will be several dates to choose from, but they fill up quickly. Sign up here.
Students transferring in 30+ hours may do their orientation online and will need to set up an appointment with an academic advisor to remove holds and enroll in classes. Other students must attend a session on campus.
On your orientation day you will attend various presentations pertaining to college and campus life, including a presentation on VA benefits. At the end of the day you will meet with the academic advisors from the college of your major and they will assist you in choosing courses and enrolling.
Gather the necessary documents required to get your benefits started here at Texas State University.
Our office is completely paperless, so be advised that all documentation will need to be accessible from a computer or mobile device. We have scanners available in the office if you require assistance with this matter.
For benefits that pay tuition amounts to the school (Chapter 33, 31, & Hazlewood), ensure that the tuition adjustment has been applied to your account. Students using all other benefits need to make arrangements with Student Business Services to pay their tuition by payment deadlines.
Make arrangements for any outstanding balance. There will be a student service fee (~$90) every semester, for Hazlewood students only. Also, all students living on campus are responsible for their housing fees and meal plans.
Contact Financial Aid if you need further assistance with tuition amounts.
Step 7: Chapter 30, 1607, and 1606 recipients ONLY
After your classes have been certified, you must verify your enrollment with the VA at the end of each month so that you will receive your payment.
Be sure that you have verified exact start and end dates for any classes in which you are enrolled that are shorter or extend beyond the regular semester.
You can verify enrollment via Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) or 1-877-823-2378. If you notice either class dates or credit amounts are incorrect while verifying, please contact our office.
