Effective August 1, 2019: Section 103, PL 115-407

Attendance and Participation While Awaiting VA Tuition and Fee Payments

Effective August 1, 2019, any student using CH31 (Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment benefits) or CH33 (Post-9/11 GI Bill®) is protected from any penalties imposed by the College while waiting for the VA to make tuition and fee payments.

Under this policy, the College:

  • Cannot deny a student access to classrooms, libraries, or other institutional facilities
  • Cannot make the student borrow money to cover costs while waiting for payment
  • Cannot charge a student a late fee or penalty

Protection begins when the student provides the school with a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) or a Statement of Benefits. The College can require the student to submit:

  • the COE or Statement of Benefits no later than the first day of the program
  • a written request to use the benefits or other necessary certifications

The coverage period ends when VA make payment or 90 days after the date the College certifies tuition and fees.
