Wilmington University programs have been approved for the awarding of benefits to eligible veterans.
The Veterans’ Affairs Office has been established by the University to coordinate veterans’ programs and services. The office provides assistance in applying for educational benefits.

Upon verification of a veteran student’s enrollment and his/her satisfactory progress, (prescribed by University guidelines), a Certification of Enrollment will be forwarded to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
It is the responsibility of the veteran to notify the Veterans’ Affairs Coordinator of his/her enrollment status each semester. Any changes in enrollment (drop, withdrawal, change in credit hours) must be reported within two weeks of the change. Pre-registration through an advisor or the registrar does not automatically register a veteran for benefits.
VA payments cannot be made for courses from which a student withdraws unless such a change was warranted by circumstances beyond the student’s control. Students will be required to submit supporting evidence to substantiate the change in enrollment status. Examples of such evidence are:
If evidence is not provided to substantiate that the change was due to unanticipated circumstances beyond the student’s control, the education award may be reduced effective the first day of the semester in which the change took place.
