FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions

  1. "Do you need anything else from me?" Please double-check the Get Started Here page to make sure you have completed all of the steps that apply to you. If/when we find something that we need from you, we contact you immediately. Please check your student email.
  2. "Why does the VA say I was certified for fewer credits than I'm taking?" If you received a copy of the VA Cert email from the VA, they only tell you about the first certification submitted or updated for you for that day. Many students have more than one certification based on having different start and end dates. If we couldn't certify a class, we will tell you about it in your student email account. Please check your spam and jumk folders for an email from
  3. "What do I do if I need money for books and the VA hasn't paid my book stipend?" Please fill out our Daniels Brothers short-term, interest-free book loan paperwork. Those forms are located in the Veteran Center and in the Veteran Services office on the Lakewood campus. We have a locked dropbox outside our office where we can receive those. We will call you as soon as it's approved, but it usually takes 1-2 business days to fully process.
  4. "When will VA pay my balance?" If you are using Post 9/11 and eligible for 100% of your tuition and fees to be paid by the VA, they typically pay the month before the semester ends. If you submitted your online form by the drop date (Request for VA Certification), you will not be charged late fees on this balance. If you are not using Post 9/11 balance, please set up a payment plan to avoid late fees.
