CH 33 - Billing

  • Pending Chapter 33 aid will be applied at the start of each term. Anticipated VA aid will show on billing statements as "bill to agency credit." Please be aware that bill to agency credits are calculated based on your enrollment and entitlement; adjustments may be necessary due to registration changes and the actual dollar amount that is sent by the VA on your behalf. It is your responsibility to notify us if or when any changes are made to your benefit eligibility. 
  • Balances resulting from aid adjustments due to registration or entitlement changes are your responsibility to pay. Since you will be able to see your benefit amount prior to the semester payment due date, you are required to adhere to all payment due dates. If you have a remaining balance after your VA aid has been applied, you may also consider utilizing the semester payment plan for balances over $2,250.

Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows private degree-granting institutions of higher learning in the U.S. to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund up to 50% of the gap, if any, between an eligible student’s primary Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) benefit and the annual cost of tuition and fees. Yellow Ribbon matches whatever amount the school contributes.
