APPLY EARLY!
Applications for the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) should be submitted to the district Veterans
          Certifying Official and WDVA by the fourteenth (14th) calendar day of the semester (WTCS Date of Record).
Applications for University of Wisconsin institutions should be submitted to the educational institution and the
          Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA) within fourteen (14) calendar days from the official start
          of the term for the fall or spring term, by June 1st for summer terms, and by the due date for term fees for
          interim terms.

Completion Checklist for Documents to Submit to WDVA:
Include all necessary forms or documentation as follows:

    Be certain to have Veteran (if still alive) and applicant sign all forms!

    Form WDVA 2030.

    Form WDVA 0001, Eligibility Determination (if eligibility for benefits has not been established since 2005).

    DD Form 214, copy #4 or #6 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty).
    NOTE on how to verify Home of Record: Some veterans discharged between1978-89 may not have “home of
    record at time of entry on to active duty” on their DD-214. You can verify Home of Record by obtaining a copy of
    your DD-215, and or DD-2058, ”State of Legal Residence Certificate,” from the records center in St. Louis or
    from tax records from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR). You can go to the DOR webpage at
    http://www.revenue.wi.gov/faqs/ise/request to print a P-521 form and request proof of filing Wisconsin state
    taxes in the year that you entered into active duty. This DOR webpage will state it only keeps microfiche
    copies of tax returns for 10 years. However, DOR does store basic tax information on a “tax roll worksheet” that
    will reflect the information for the year requested even when the year requested is more than 10 years old. The
    “tax roll worksheet” can provide the necessary proof of your Home of Record. DOR currently charges a small
    fee ($6.00 at the time of publishing this brochure) to obtain the “tax roll worksheet.” Requests are generally
    mailed within 15 business days. Contact your County Veterans Service Officer if you require additional
    assistance.

    Death Certificate if the veteran is deceased.

    Initial Federal VA Service-Connected Disability (SCD) Rating Notification Letter showing 30% or more
    SCD rating if claiming eligibility based on service-connected disability. The Wisconsin Department of Veterans
    Affairs will send a completed certification of veteran status and eligibility to your school Veterans Certifying
    Official.
