Important Changes for Post 9/11 GI Bill and Ch 31 VR&E (Voc Rehab) Students:

On December 21, 2021, President Biden signed remote act into law. This law extends the converted to remote training provision to allow students who are registered for “Other Distance Mode” courses to be certified as on campus for housing allowance of chapter 33 payments. Courses that are listed as other distance mode as delivery mode will be certified as in-person. This extension will end on June 1st, 2022, be sure to register for a fully on campus or hybrid course during the summer 2022 so that you are not adversely impacted if COVID provisions are not extended further.

All Post 9/11 GI Bill students are required to verify their enrollment monthly to the VA starting this Spring 2022 semester.

  • Text Messaging – Students who choose VA’s “Opt-In” feature will receive a text message each month prompting them to verify their enrollment status
  • Email – Students who do not Opt-In for text will be automatically enrolled in email verification and sent an automated email on the last day of the month to verify their enrollment status
  • Telephone – Students who opt out of text and email may call the Education Call Center (ECC) at 888-442-4551 to verify their enrollment status



Monday - Thursday:
9 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Once you are registered for Fall classes, submit your VSB through Workday.
