Policy on Veterans Benefits and Enrollment

Owner: Enrollment Management

Tags: Student Affairs

In accordance with the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, Teachers College will not prevent veteran students covered under Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation) or Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 GI Bill) from attending or participating in the course of study to which they have been admitted due to not meeting the deadline for term payment as long as a certificate of eligibility has been provided prior to the start of the term of study in which the veteran student is requesting the use of Chapter 31 or Chapter 33 benefits.

Teachers College will hold in abeyance all required payment of tuition, fees, and other costs incurred in a term where the veteran student requested the use of Chapter 31 or Chapter 33 benefits until (whichever comes first):

  1. The date on which payment from the VA is made to the institution


        2. 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certificate of eligibility.

In no case will Teachers College impose penalties or deny access to standard campus services due to the delayed disbursement of payment from the Department of Veterans Affairs under Chapters 31 or 33.


Effective Date: July 18, 2019
