Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33)

Public Law 116-315, Section 1010

Effective August 01, 2021

Schools are now required to certify Post 9/11 GI Bill® student’s enrollment at the beginning of the semester and after the add-drop date.

  • Initial enrollments submitted prior to each semester / course start date
  • MVS will submit zero tuition and fees to the VA for processing of monthly housing allowance and book stipend 
  • The MVS office will amend the student enrollment, submitting tuition and fees to VA for processing of tuition and fees after the add-drop date
  • this will satisfy the second certifying mandate under P.L. 116

If a student applies to utilize their benefits after the add-drop date, the MVS office will submit the initial enrollment with tuition and fees and submit the second enrollment certifying the beneficiary’s enrollment after 48 hours. 

Beware – if courses have different start and end dates, add-drop dates will vary, so tuition and fee submission and payment dates will vary. 

Public Law 116-315, Section 1019

Schools (instead of students) are now responsible for the return of any tuition and fee overpayment within an established timeframe based on several reasons, ie, reduction in student enrollment. The payment may be more than, less than or equal to the amount crediting to a student’s account based on the school withdrawal and refund policy. UofR has the right to bill the student, if the debt is more than the credit balance the student currently has on their account.  A notification will be sent to the student regarding the charge. 

It is the student’s responsibility to make a payment in a timely manner.
