Veterans Services

Fox Valley Technical College has a long history of providing education and training to Veterans, Servicemembers and qualifying family members. It is a privilege to serve those who have served our country.

Our staff assists students with Veteran education benefits and serves as a liaison between our students and various federal, state and local agencies. We look forward to working with you!

Getting Started at FVTC

Under 2013 Assembly Bill 201, degree-seeking student Veterans and Servicemembers may qualify for early enrollment depending on the condition of their military discharge. Students using Veteran education benefits will be identified for early enrollment accordingly. Students not using Veteran education benefits must contact FVTC Veterans Services and submit proper documentation to apply for early enrollment.

2.0 Cumulative GPA Requirement:

Beginning in January 2014, any student using the Wisconsin G.I. Bill, whether it be the Veteran, the spouse or the child of a Veteran, must maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA or higher in order to remain eligible for the Wisconsin G.I. Bill benefits. Should a student using the Wisconsin G.I. Bill have a cumulative GPA that falls below the threshold of 2.0 at the end of a term, the student may still enroll the following term; however, they will not be able to use the Wisconsin G.I. Bill at that time. Should the student get their cumulative GPA back to a 2.0 or higher at the end of a non-qualifying term, the student will be re-certified for the subsequent term by the institution/school.

FVTC Veterans Services may request the following items for your file:

  • Federal Certificate of Eligibility (COE)
  • DD-214 (member 4 copy)
  • WDVA 2029 (if applying for the WI G.I. Bill)
  • Marriage Certificate (if spouse)
  • Birth Certificate (if dependent)
  • Service-connected disability rating papers (if applying for a benefit requiring a service-connected disability)

If you are using a federal benefit, it is crucial that you notify FVTC Veterans Services of future enrollments. We are required to certify your classes every semester. Failure to notify us of enrollment will result in non-payment.

Transfer Credit/Advanced Standing Opportunities

The first step to claiming the credits you have earned is to request a Joint Services Transcript.
