Student data will only appear if you have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Veteran educational benefits will only appear if you have turned in all required documents and the Veteran Certification of Eligibility Form. Contact the Veteran School Certifying Official if you would like an estimated financing plan.

17. Amount of costs that are covered by VA education benefits.
VA educational benefits are limited to a monthly stipend and/or payment of mandatory tuition
and fees. VA education benefits only pay stipends for the months school attendance is reported.
Those payments are prorated for partial months and are based on the exact start/end dates
of your coursework. A beneficiary attending school for the approximate 8 months of the fall and
spring semesters will use approximately that many months of benefit.
Chapter 33 provides additional funding (up to $1,000 per academic year) to help offset the cost
of books/supplies. Chapter 31 education benefits cover the entire cost of books/supplies. The
other VA educational benefits (Chapters 30, 35, and 1606) only provide a monthly stipend that is
dependent on your rate of pursuit and benefit type that can be used to help pay for tuition and
fees – no additional books/supplies stipend is awarded.
