My name is Mary Benedict, I am the Director and the Veterans Administration (VA) Certifying Official for Tennessee Tech. I work directly with students and the VA to ensure that each Veteran and Military family member maximizes their education benefit and that the university receives payment in a timely manner. I am the proud spouse of an Army Veteran and have been working in support of military families since 2008. Please feel free to call, email or stop by if you have questions or concerns about the upcoming semester, have paperwork to turn in or if you are currently taking classes and need to discuss making changes that could effect your benefits.

I encourage you to explore our website; you will find commonly used forms, helpful websites and information about how to get involved with our Student Veteran Organization here on campus. We strive to provide the best support possible and are passionate about helping Veterans and their families.
If you are new to Tech we welcome you and wish you nothing but the best!
