Veteran Students' Responsibilities
Students using VA Benefits at KSU have ongoing responsibilities to the VA and KSU. The student's entitlement is based upon the number of credit hours for which they are certified. Current pay rates can be viewed at: www.va.gov.
Students must notify the VA Certifying Official of any of the following:
- Change of degree program
- Change of address
- Out more than three semesters
- Student does not want a semester certified
Chapter 30 and Chapter 1606 Monthly Verification
All students receiving Chapter 30 or Chapter 1606 benefits must verify their monthly enrollment no earlier than the last day of each month or after. The benefit (monetary award) will not be released by the VA until this is done. Enrollment verification can be accomplished by using the VA toll-free telephone number 1.877.823.2378 or the WAVE feature found on the VA website www.gibill.va.gov.
Students are responsible for paying all university bills. The student MUST adhere to published payment deadlines. Please check your account one week prior to the published payment deadline to confirm amount owed, if any, to KSU.
Veterans and survivors/dependents receiving the following benefits – Chapter 30, Chapter 1606, and Chapter 35 - are responsible for paying all tuition and fees prior to the published payment deadline.
Veterans receiving Post 9/11 benefits must have a current Certificate of Eligibility and updated benefits letter on file in our office. Failure to provide the certificate will result in a delay of the certification of enrollment. Also, if the certificate is not on file, the veteran must pay full tuition by the payment deadline. Those who have a certificate on file, receive 100% of the benefit, and have an in-state status will have their tuition and fees covered for classes that are required for their degree program. Any veteran with an out-of-state status or receiving less than 100% of the Post 9/11 benefit will be responsible for any charges not covered by their VA benefit and must pay by payment deadlines.
Chapter 31 (Voc Rehab) students must verify through their Voc Rehab Counselor that their authorization to charge the university (for tuition/fees/books, and/or supplies) has been uploaded for the Certifying Official.
It normally takes the VA processing center 6-8 weeks to process new educational claims, so please plan accordingly.
