Students with entitlement to Post 9/11 (Chapter 33) benefits will have the expected amount to be paid directly to the school by the VA deferred from their account upon confirmation of said payment amount.

The monthly stipend is paid based upon that percentage, as well as on the number of CU’s in which you enroll, reflects your rate of pursuit. Arrangements for payment of any tuition balance remaining must be set up with the Financial Services (opens new window) team prior to the start of each term.
