Veteran Benefits

Certification of enrollment for the purpose of education benefits is a service provided by the Office of the Registrar. Students who plan to attend Mount Mercy while receiving any type of Veterans Education Benefits should follow the steps outlined below:

  • As part of the admissions process, veterans should submit a copy of their DD Form 214 to the Admissions Office and request an A.R.R.T.S transcript. 
  • After you have submitted your DD Form 214 and official transcripts to the Admissions Office, you will receive a transfer evaluation of your prior military training and/or college according to the ACE Guide to the Evaluation of Experience in the Armed Services and college academic policy. 
  • Once you have applied for admission to Mount Mercy, you should then file the appropriate Application for Education Benefits Form (as indicated below) to the campus Registrar's Office. 
  • To receive benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill for Active Duty (Chapter 30), complete form 1990.

  • Courses you repeat if you have already received a passing grade (A, B, C, or D) in that course. However, you may repeat a course that you previously failed. 
  • Courses that are not part of your degree requirements. 
  • Appeals may be made if documentation can support the occurrence of special circumstances. 
  • Notify the Registrar's Office if you make a change in your major, course load, withdraw from classes or the college, or change your address.
