Parent School Letter Request

KU students taking courses at another school

You may be able to use your VA benefits to pay for those courses. The courses must be transferable and apply to the student's degree plan.

Your "parent" school is the institution that has your eligibility information, official degree plan and is on record with the VA. All other schools are "secondary."

To request your Parent School Letter:

  • Complete the appropriate steps for New & Transfer students or Returning & Continuing Students on our Using VA Benefits page and be sure to identify the other school you will be taking courses on that form.

The KU Office of the University Registrar will process your paperwork and issue the letter directly to the secondary school.

Guest students taking courses at KU

If you are seeking a degree at another school but taking a class at KU, you are considered a "guest student." Follow the instructions on our Using VA Benefits page under "Guest Students."
