Lakeland University is state agency approved to certify all programs with the exception of the Wisconsin GI Bill®, which is restricted to public institutions, and the VRAP program, which is restricted to approved two-year institutions. Lakeland's Director of Veteran Services, Sue Bialk, will process all appropriate military paperwork on a semester-by-semester basis. You can reach her by telephone at 920-565-1032 ext. 2377 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Her office is located in William A. Krueger, Room #104.
Lakeland University is dedicated to serving students who receive military benefits by providing timely and accurate information about the institution and benefit certification prior to and during a student's enrollment at the university. With transfer-friendly policies, military and veteran students will receive maximum transfer credits toward their bachelor’s degree. The ability to convert military experience and/or training into college credit can help accelerate the journey to a degree at Lakeland!
If you are unsure of your eligibility for benefits, please contact your local VA Service Office (located in your local courthouse), go to vets.gov, or call the GI Bill® Call Center at 1-888-GIBILL-1. Once you are certain of your eligibility, you can access all pertinent forms required to apply for your military benefits or to transfer your benefits to Lakeland University from another college or university by visiting vets.gov. Complete all pertinent forms, and submit them.
Veterans should notify Sue Bialk of enrollment each term, and any changes in enrollment (add/drops/withdrawals). Failure to do so could result in benefits not being processed or in overpayments.
