Welcome Jaguars!

The University of South Alabama proudly welcomes you to Jag Nation. We appreciate your service to our nation and we aim to facilitate your academic success by providing support, resources and information to assist you in your academic endeavors.

All military-affiliated students may utilize services provided by the Office of Veteran Affairs.  New students should report to the Office of Veteran Affairs at the time of application to the University for assistance in using their GI Bill.


Certification for benefits must be requested in writing by completing a Request for Certification. Found in the Forms tab, Request for Certification must be signed by your academic advisor each term you wish to use your GI Bill.

 Students receiving veteran's benefits are responsible for the payment of all tuition and fees at the time of registration. The G.I. Bill may not meet the total cost of attendance. For a net price calculator, please go to Students may also apply for Financial Aid to cover any unmet need. Post 9/11 students may be an exception. It is the student's responsibility to assure that all requests for VA and Federal Tuition Assistance are submitted in advance and in a timely manner. A payment plan is offered through the University of South Alabama Office of Student Accounting.  For more information about this plan visit
