Did you enter military service at a location in the state of Texas? Or did you enter military service outside of Texas, but have a designated home of record in the state of Texas at that time? If so, you may qualify for Hazlewood for Veterans benefits. Once your application is submitted, an MSSC Hazlewood representative will review it in the order in which it was received.
Hazlewood benefits will be posted on your account along with financial aid, approximately 2 weeks prior to the semester. Students can check Pete's Payment Options at http://sbs.utep.edu
Are you the biological, adopted or step-child of a Texas veteran? Will you be 25 years of age, or younger on the first day of the next semester you plan to attend? If so, you may qualify for Hazlewood Legacy benefits. Hazlewood Legacy can only be given to one child at a time. If a veteran wishes to transfer Legacy benefits from one child to another, in addition to all other required documentation, they need to fill out the Legacy Revocation Form.
Are you the spouse or eligible child of a Texas veteran who became 100% disabled for the purposes of employability or died as a result of service-related injury or illness? If so, you may qualify for Hazlewood Dependents benefits.
All Hazlewood students must make satisfactory academic progress in accordance with the institution's financial aid policy. This applies to:
If a Hazlewood student has unsatisfactory academic progress, he/she must complete a term without Hazlewood and meet SAP to be reinstated. This does not apply to children or spouses of veterans killed in action, missing in action, or who died due to a service-related illness or injury.
