Admissions and Records is responsible for the certification of GI® Bill education benefits to VA. 


Attention current students using GI Bill® benefits: 

The COVID-19 pandemic required the college to switch to online instruction with the exception of a few courses. New legislation allows VA to pay education benefits regardless of the fact that a course has been converted from resident training to online training. GI Bill® students will continue to receive housing allowance payments at the resident training until 12/21/21, or until the school resumes normal operations of resident training, for programs converted solely to online training. This means if a college converts from an approved residence training course to online training for that course (distance learning) due to COVID-19, benefits will not change.

Courses that were originally intended as face-to-face offerings will continue to be certified as resident courses, regardless of a planned or subsequent transition to online distance education due to COVID-19.

Courses that were originally scheduled as online will be certified as distance education courses.

To receive maximum basic housing allowance payments, students must not be registered in only classes originally scheduled as online.

Students must be registered in at least one course that is not on the lists above.


VA recently issued a news release extending debt relief to Veterans through the end of the year. The full release can be found here. Collection actions on Veteran debts owed to VA under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Treasury Department remain suspended through the end of 2020.
