Steps to Take Classes at UALR as a Guest Student

  1. Notify your VA Certifying Official at your home institution that you would like to take classes at UALR for the degree you are seeking.
  2. If Ch. 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment student, approval is also needed from your Voc Rehab counselor to attend another school. If approved, your counselor will send Form 28-1905 to the UALR Office of Veterans Affairs. The form may be faxed to 501.683.7055 or emailed to vavets@ualr.edu. Ch. 31 students, please complete Step 4 also.
  3. If approved to take courses at UALR, your VA Certifying Official at your institution will send a “Parent letter” to UALR. This letter may be faxed to 501.683.7055 or emailed to vavets@ualr.edu.
  4. After registering for the class(es) at UALR you are approved for, submit a UALR VA Certification Request Form (CRF). The form is available online at ualr.edu/admissions/va-certification-request.
    The CRF form will allow the UALR Office of Veterans Affairs to:
    a) Release your information, as required, to the Veterans Regional Office.
    b) Make payment arrangements on your behalf to prevent deletion of classes. Once funds are released by the VA Regional Office, you are responsible for making payments on your balance to UALR or ensuring your balance is paid in full.
