Important Notice: Federal VA Benefits
MVP staff has been working diligently to certify students for VA benefits for Fall
2020; however, you may be experiencing delayed notification of your certification

etc.) is a required component for sending certification to the VA. Because of COVID,
class modality was not set by Texas Tech until July 16, 2020, so MVP could not begin
to certify students for federal VA benefits until after July 16, 2020 when normally,
we start immediately after pre-registration around May 1st for Summer and Fall semesters.
