Post 9/11 G.I. Bill Payment
Chapter 33 benefits can include payment of tuition and fees, a monthly housing allowance, a stipend for books and supplies, and a college fund (“kicker”) payments. Chapter 33 differs from other education Chapters in that each type of payment is issued separately, with some payments made directly to the school and others directly to the student.
Mobilization/Deployment Refund Policy
Members of the military who receive orders which transfer them out of the area for a prolonged period or members of the National Guard or Reserves who are called to active duty, when such transfer interferes with class attendance, may request a full refund of tuition at any time during the semester. Documentation of orders for transfer must be provided prior to refund being granted. The college has a proration refund policy for students receiving VA benefits. Students receiving VA benefits must request that the prorated refund policy be used for tuition reimbursement.
