How to Begin the Process

Admission to ULM is the first step to receiving your VA educational benefits. Once you have applied for admission and have been accepted, you can begin the process to receive benefits.

The ULM Application Fee is waived for all U.S. veterans, per Louisiana's Board of Regents, the governing body for all institutions of Higher Education in the state.  Proof of current military service or a DD214 military separation form is required to provide this waiver.

Louisiana statute RS 13:5364 defines "veteran" for purposes of this fee waiver as a former or current member of the U.S. Armed Forces or organized militia of the several states and territories, including but not limited to a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, National Guard, Air National Guard, Reserves, State Guard, or a commissioned officer of the Public Health Service, Environmental Science Services Administration, or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or its predecessor, the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey.
