Current ECU Students Renewing Your VA Educational Benefits
Enrollment Certification Renewal Is Not Automatic
You must submit a Request for Benefits Form each semester as soon as you register for the following term to re-activate your benefits and prevent a lapse in payment. Without a new benefits form, your payments will stop.
You must notify this office if you change your major, withdraw, add or drop classes. Failure to do so may result in a debt with the VA.
The VA will be notified of failure to maintain standards of attendance, progress, or conduct: When a student has failed to maintain the prescribed standard of attendance, progress, or conduct, the school must promptly notify VA so that VA can discontinue benefit payments in accordance with the law. If a student’s progress or conduct becomes unsatisfactory, the termination date assigned by the school will be the last day of the term or other evaluation period in which the student’s progress or conduct became unsatisfactory. In situations involving unsatisfactory attendance, benefits will be discontinued based on the student’s last date of attendance as reported by the school.
Verification Procedure for Chapter 33, 30 and 1606 Students
Students receiving Montgomery GI Bill® (Chapter 30, Chapter 1606) benefits are required to verify their monthly attendance at the end of each month by dialing the toll-free number (1-877-823-2378) or by the Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE). Your verification triggers a deposit into your direct deposit account 5-7 business days after you verify.
Chapter 33 – Post 9/11 recipients must verify their attendance with the Department of Veterans Affairs at the end of each month. Failure to do so for two consecutive months will result in a halt of your housing payments. Visit the VA webpage for information on how enrollment verification works.
