Enrollment at Black Hills State University

I expect to attend the following semesters. Enter "0" or "NO" if you don't want to use benefits for a semester.

*If yes, you must notify our office each term!

  • You must apply at in order to first start your benefits - that is a one-time application.
  • This Student Info Sheet gives BHSU permission to certify your enrollment - this form is updated annually.
  • If you have used benefits before at a different school, fill out a VA Form 22-1995 (or Form 22-5495 for Ch. 35) before your benefits can be processed - this can be completed online and submitted to the VA.

I hereby acknowledge that I must notify Veterans' Services of all courses I take that do not satisfy a requirement in my degree program. VA will not pay for these classes (extra electives, repeating a passed course, etc.). If I drop, add, or withdrawal from a class I must inform Vet's office to avoid any overpayments or non-payments. Any debts that are created are my responsibility to repay. All benefits, other than Tuition & Fees, will be paid directly to me. Reminder: CH1606, 1607, and 30 must verify their monthly enrollment on WAVE every month. This info sheet expires May 2015. I have read and understand the above information and have received a copy of the New Student Counseling Form: download form here


Once submitted by the certifying official to the VA, first time education benefits will be processed in 6-12 weeks, recurring benefits may be processed sooner. You will get an automated email from the VA when your credits have been submitted. VA: 888-442-4551. VA Fax: 314-552-9741.
