Processing delays at the VA during peak times of the year

The Department of Veteran Affairs has advised our office that first-time applicants (Veterans and Dependents of Veterans) may experience application processing delays due to the high volume of applications being submitted.  Longer delays can be expected between the months of June, July and August, which are typically when most individuals are applying for VA Benefits because these are the months leading up to the Fall semester at schools across the country.

First time GI Bill recipients may also experience a delay in the receipt of your first benefit payment.  Once the first payment has been issued all other payments should be made on time.

If you have not received your monthly payment one week after the first of the month, please contact Veterans Services at the College.  Our office can be reached via e-mail at or by visiting Veterans Services on Central Campus, Building 19, Room 101.  Our office would be more than happy to assist you with any delays in payment. 

Updates for GI Bill Housing Payment Delays

The VA announced that it would be more than a year until they were able to fully implement the Forever GI Bill.  This would delay the roll out date to make correct GI Bill housing payments under the law until December 1, 2019.

The VA encourages students that require assistance with their GI Bill benefit or experience a financial hardship due to a delay in payment to contact the Education Call Center at 888-442-4551 between 8:00 am - 7:00 pm Monday - Friday. 

Fall 2019 Enrollment Certification
Veterans are now able to submit enrollment certifications for the upcoming Fall 2019 term.  These certifications allow veterans to request enrollment certification with the VA as well as upload any necessary documents needed for proof of benefit eligibility completely online.  These certification(s) must be completed each term in order to certify and process your VA Benefits.  Veterans may only submit certifications once per term.  If there is a change in your enrollment status after your certification request has been submitted, please e-mail  Prior to completing your certification request, please make sure you are registered for classes.  
Please be advised Veterans Services has stopped collecting Veteran Benefit Certification requests for the 2018-2019 academic year.  If you need to submit a certification to have your enrollment updated with the VA, please contact our office at
