Veterans Affairs

The Veterans Affairs (VA) School Certifying Official (SCO) and the VA staff are located in the Office of the Registrar. We assist service members, veterans and their dependents who receive VA education benefits while pursuing their academic career at UH Mānoa.

The SCO is responsible for certifying and monitoring students’ course enrollment, academic progress, and other academic information.

When the VA has determined that you are eligible for education benefits, and after you have registered for classes, the SCO will certify your enrollment with the VA to enable you to collect the benefits you are entitled to. Contact us via email, phone or in-person if you have any questions pertaining to the processing of your VA education benefits.
