The 2023-2024 Academic Year cap applies to grandfathered and non-grandfathered students.
The Books and Supplies payment, the Tuition and Fees payment (and Yellow Ribbon if applicable) for each term will not be released more than 14 days prior to the beginning of that term. Payments processed more than 14 days prior to the beginning of a term will be set up on a payment schedule to be released from VA no more than 14 days prior to the beginning of that term. This includes mini-terms that may have been certified with a standard term or multiple terms with varying begin dates. You should expect EFTpayments 3-5 business days later, 7-10 days later if you receive Treasury checks.
Effective Aug. 1, 2012 Chapter 33 students will only be entitled to a kicker (commonly referred to as a college fund) for the benefit that they relinquished when they elected Chapter 33.
For example: If a student was eligible for a MGIB Chapter 30 and a MGIB-SR Chapter 1606 kicker and they relinquished MGIB Chapter 30 when they elected Chapter 33, the student would no longer be eligible to receive the Chapter 1606 under Chapter 33 (prior to Aug. 1, 2012 they would have been paid both kickers under Chapter 33). Affected students will be sent a letter detailing this action and what they need to do if they disagree with this decision. Please refer to the www.vets.gov website or the 1 (888) 442-4551 toll free number if you have questions about your kickers.
