Enrollment Certification

Once your schedule is finalized and you have registered for your courses, you may complete the LSU Enrollment Certification Request form. Check to be sure all areas have been addressed correctly before submitting. You must complete a new LSU Enrollment Certification Request form for each semester you plan to use VA Educational Benefits. Please allow up to 30 days for the processing of your benefits.

Once your benefits are applied to your account, you must complete your registration on your MyLSU account to secure your schedule. If you do not complete your registration by the payment deadline your classes will be purged.
