Attention TA and CAP Recipients
If you collect Chapter 33-Post 9/11 Benefits and you also get Tuition Assistance (TA) or College Assistance Program (CAP): The VA now requires that the Office of Veterans Services deduct the amount of those awards from your total Tuition and Fees before we submit your Certification of Enrollment and Charges to the VA Regional Processing Office.
If either of these situations applies to you, please notify a staff member when you turn in your Spring 2013 Schedule and Bill for processing.
Attention Veterans: Remember to recertify after March 1st of every year. You must complete a new Enrollment Certification Request each year or your benefits will be interrupted. PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE RECEIVING THE POST-9/11 GI BILL, CHAPTER 33, YOU MUST SUBMIT YOUR TUITION AND FEES STATEMENT FOR EACH SEMESTER YOU ATTEND IN ORDER TO RECEIVE BENEFITS.
