GI Bill®
A student entitled to educational assistance through the GI Bill ® should submit a certificate of eligibility as early as possible, but no later than the first day of class. Students should complete the VA Certification Request Form to use their entitlement and provide all necessary information for a timely certification of enrollment. In such cases, the institution will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds due to the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement of a payment to be provided by the VA.
