Are you planning on using your veteran administration GI bill ® or Post-9/11 bill? Veteran students applying for Post-9/11 GI Bill ® benefits (Chapter 33) veteran affairs benefits must provide the College a certificate of veteran eligibility or a payment letter detailing eligibility percentage and time period. Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) will certify Chapter 33 benefits before receipt of this required document, but information must be received before payment from the Department of Veteran Affairs benefits (VA) can be applied to student’s account.
Here’s what you need to know:
The College will estimate the amount VA benefits expected to be paid. If VA fails to pay or pays a different amount, then the student is responsible and must pay the difference. Students identified as having applied for veterans benefits will have their payment deadline extended until the final payment due date for a session within a term. By the final due date, veteran students will be dropped unless tuition is paid, student has provided the necessary paperwork to be identified as eligible for Chapter 33 benefits equal to or in excess of the tuition amount due, or student has applied for a veteran deferment.
Veteran students applying for veteran educational benefits are eligible for one 60-day deferment of tuition per academic year. For additional information, visit tuition installment plans (TIPs) or download the brochure now:
