If you plan on using your military benefits and do not want to pay tuition and fees while your benefits are being processed, you must request Deferment.
Submit signed VA Deferment Form to Veterans Certifying Official AFTER you have registered for ALL classes for each term and no later than two weeks prior to the fee payment deadline for each term.
VA Students who do not sign a Deferment form and have a balance on their account as of the established purge dates will be purged from all registered classes due to non-payment.
If you have sufficient financial aid to cover your tuition and fees, it is not necessary for you to sign the deferment form; however, you will need to let the VA School Certifying Official know when you register for your classes so that your enrollment may be submitted to the VA.
It is not necessary for you to sign a deferment form or to notify the School Certifying Official that you have registered for classes. Instead, once you have registered for classes, submit a copy of your schedule to your VR Counselor. This will prompt your counselor to send a request to the school to verify your schedule. The School Certifying Official (SCO) will confirm your schedule with your counselor. If you are approved for a bookstore authorization, an account will be established for you once the verification process has been completed.
