Welcome to MVP forms!

Military & Veterans Programs has transitioned to a paperless office environment. All required documents for certification must be submitted to MVP as an attachment to your online electronic form.

MVP Forms

How to Start:

  • Complete registration with no expected changes prior to submitting an MVP Form for certification.
  • Sign onto MVP Forms with your ERaider ID and Password.
  • Click one form per term for completion.
  • Only the terms listed in each dropdown are available for certification.
  • Specific Instructions are available within each form.
  • Click on links within each form for Federal Checklists and the Hazlewood Checklists.
  • Remember to upload requested supporting documents prior to form submission. Note: In MVP Forms, push SAVE before SUBMIT to view uploaded documents
  • Click on Federal Educational Benefits, PDF Forms & Checklists to access forms not yet available on MVP Forms such as a Parent Institution Letter (PIL), Federal Tutoring forms, the TTU SBS 3rd Party Agreement form or the Military Payment Plan Enrollment Request Form.
    • All MVP Students may fill out a Military Payment Plan Enrollment Request form and submit it to sbs@ttu.edu or submit it directly to SBS in 301 West Hall. This form will delay payment for tuition and fees only until the first payment plan deadline. Note: if you have Housing, meal plan or other charges, this form doesn't cover those so you must go ahead and make payment arrangements with SBS for those items immediately.

Background

Section 103 of Public Law (PL) 115-407, ‘Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018,' amends Title 38 US Code 3679 by adding a new subsection (e) that requires disapproval of courses of education, beginning August 1, 2019, at any educational institution that does not have a policy in place that will allow an individual to attend or participate in a course of education, pending VA payment, providing the individual submits a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under Chapter 31 or 33.
