Welcome Jaguars!

The University of South Alabama proudly welcomes you to the Jag Nation. We appreciate your service to our country. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.  

Allow us to alleviate the stress of transitioning to South by following our transition guide found at Using My GI Bill.  New students should connect with  the Office of Veteran Affairs at the time of application to the University for assistance in using their GI Bill.

Educational benefits must be requested in writing each semester by completing a Request for Certification. 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 ensure that all requests for VA and Federal Tuition Assistance are submitted two weeks prior to the start of each term. Please don’t delay your request. A delayed request may delay your funds, be sure to reach out to us with any questions you may have at 

If you need assistance with educational costs, a  payment plan is offered through the University of South Alabama Office of Student Accounting.  For more information about this plan visit
