Area veterans and their dependents interested in using their Military Education Benefits to earn a college degree from Missouri State University-West Plains are invited to attend an informational session Monday or Tuesday, November 15-16, at the university’s Hass-Darr Hall, room 104.
No appointment is necessary; veterans are invited to drop by anytime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Mark White, coordinator of Missouri State-West Plains’ Veteran Services, said university officials will be on hand to help veterans navigate the admissions and financial aid process for the 2022 spring semester. This includes assistance with completing the application for admission, filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), choosing a degree program, and completing the veteran’s educational benefits eligibility forms.
Veterans interested in taking classes during the 2022 spring semester should bring their 2019 personal income tax records for filling out the FAFSA, and their DD-214 for filling out the educational benefits forms.
