Enrollment Certification Reminder
Request forms for GI Bill Enrollment Certification need to be submitted each semester you want to use your GI Bill benefits. Remember to submit your request form to our office after you have scheduled your classes to avoid a delay in your benefits.
Please notify us of any schedule adjustments or if you get enrolled in a waitlisted class after your form has been submitted so we can notify the VA of the changes in your enrollment.
Important enrollment information for GI Bill benefits:
You must be enrolled full time throughout the entire semester to be paid full time benefits. For example - 9 credits from 08/21/17 to 12/17/17 and 3 credits from 08/21/17 to 10/15/17 would pay you full time benefits for the first 8 weeks of the term. After 10/15/17 you would be enrolled 3/4 time.
Post 9/11 recipients must register for at least one class that meets on campus as part of their full time enrollment (other courses may be online) to receive the full BAH they are eligible for.

STORY
Military Withdraw Policy
Upon notification of an upcoming deployment or extended military duty, contact Office for Veteran and Military Personnel immediately. Prior to processing a Military Withdrawal, you will be encouraged to contact your instructors so that you may either continue your course while on military orders or receive an Incomplete so that you might complete your course when you return from military orders
If you are unable to make arrangements and need to withdraw from classes, bring a copy of your orders or a memo from your unit to OVMP to complete a military withdrawal from some or all courses. If you notify OVMP that you are withdrawing due to military orders, or if we process a military withdrawal on your behalf, we will notify the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs that there are mitigating circumstances surrounding the reduction or termination of your benefits. Their policy is to stop payment effective the date of your drop or withdrawal, but they do not typically require repayment of benefits already disbursed for that semester. The VA usually restores any entitlement charged for the semester you are unable to complete due to military duty..
