The Veteran's Coordinator in the Student Services Center administers the program for veterans. Pacific Lutheran University's academic programs of study are approved by the Washington Higher Education Coordinating Boards State Approving Agency (HECB/SAA) for enrollment of persons eligible to receive educational benefits under Title 38 and Title 10USC.

When students gain admission to the University and are eligible to receive VA benefits, they must contact the Veteran's Affairs Coordinator in the Student Services Center and submit the necessary paperwork for certification. The student must turn in the PLU Certification request form each term to insure continuous receipt of benefits.
