UC San Diego Extension's professional certificates are approved for Veterans Education Benefits.
Veterans, veteran dependents, and others eligible for veterans' education programs should determine their benefits and obtain authorization prior to enrolling in courses.
Instructions to obtain and maintain VA Education Benefits while attending our certificate programs can be found in our VA Registration Checklist.
Eligible VA students may utilize their educational benefits for approved certificate programs only. Students applying for VA Education Benefits must provide the following documentation:
We encourage veterans to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions. All forms may be found at www.vba.va.gov/VBA/forms/Education.asp. All information below the title bar "Fee Waivers and Tuition Assistance" should remain as it is now.
Under Section 32320 of the California Education Code, students enrolled in UCSD Extension programs and other self-supporting UC programs are not eligible to use the Cal Vet College Tuition Fee Waiver towards program tuition fees.
Students using Tuition Assistance must submit the authorization contract from their Base Education Office to our Student Services office at the time of enrollment with the enrollment form. If the government does not cover the entire tuition fee, your payment (or student share) is also due at the time of enrollment. All standard enrollment deadlines and late fees apply.
Our programs and courses do not qualify under GoArmyEd and Navy TA.
To enroll, please submit your completed enrollment form and Tuition Assistance Authorization form by the following methods:

VA funded students are responsible for notifying the VA Representatives immediately of any action affecting their enrollment status—whether a class has been enrolled in or dropped. Failure to do so may result in termination of benefits.
Satisfactory progress toward the stated student objective must be maintained. A veteran student on academic or lack of progress probation status will be disqualified when his/her grade point average (GPA) falls below 2.0 for two consecutive quarters.
Additionally, we require that students shall at all times when on the classroom premises conduct themselves in an orderly and considerate manner, shall appear for classes in a sober and receptive condition, and shall adhere to the UCSD Standards of Student Conduct. Violation of these standards is just cause for dismissal.
Students are also responsible for verifying their enrollment with VA. Almost everyone receiving MGIB-Active Duty benefits, as well as those in the Selected Reserve, must verify their enrollment each month to receive payment for the month.
Your enrollment can be verified on the last calendar day of the month by using:
Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) at https://www.gibill.va.gov/wave
Calling the toll free Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telephone line at 1 (877) 823-2378
