Veterans Educational Benefits Payments and Verification

See the chart below for VA Educational Assistance Allowance guidelines. During the summer terms, the number of credit hours required for full-time payment varies according to the number of credit hours and duration of the summer sessions.

Break Pay

Effective for enrollment periods beginning on or after August 1, 2011 payment for any breaks between any terms is prohibited for any GI Bill program. Breaks during a term or session (such as Spring Break for example) will be paid.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VETERANS IN A PSAV PROGRAM: Veteran or dependents of veterans using VA educational benefits for a PSAV certificate program cannot be certified for any online or hybrid courses. The VA requires all PSAV programs to be certified in clock hours so only in-classroom classes can be certified for VA educational benefits.
