Veterans Education and Transition

Please use the link below to submit your Notification of Intent to use benefits. A Notification of Intent has to be submitted every semester a student wants to use benefits.

 

There are a few errors a student may encounter when submitting a Notification Of Intent.

  1. Address and phone errors are the most common, to rectify please log into your Cyberbear and click on the personal information tab in the upper left corner, then click on the General Self Service link. This is where you can update you phone number or address, you have to have both a mailing and permanent phone number and address listed.
  2. The second most common error is not yet being registered for classes, you have to first register for classes before you will be able to submit your Notification Of Intent for a semester.
    1. Making adjustments to your registration after you submit your Notification Of Intent may impact your benefits and take longer to process.
  3. The third error a student may receive is missing Social Security Number (SSN), to rectify this the VETS Office will need a copy of the student's SSN card or a DD-214 where the SSN can be verified. The SSN card or DD-214 can be emailed to vetsoffice@mso.umt.edu.

Once the error has been rectified the student may still receive the same error, this is caused by how web browsers cache information. To fix this a student can clear their cache then close their web browser and try again, or open a new incognito window to submit their Notification Of Intent.

We are not the VA, but are liaison's between the students, University, and VA. 

Our goal is to provide a positive environment for veterans and family members, offering a place to study, eat, and relax.
