Students are responsible for paying all university bills. Shorter University and the VA do not have an agreement to process tuition/fee waivers; therefore, failure of the VA to pay students in a timely manner does not eliminate or delay a student’s financial responsibility to Shorter University. It normally takes the Atlanta VA processing center 6-8 weeks to process new educational claims, so please plan accordingly.
Veteran Students’ Responsibilities:
Veteran students at Shorter University have ongoing responsibilities to the VA. The Shorter University VA Coordinator closely monitors each student’s enrollment status and academic program. The student’s entitlement is based upon the number of credit hours for which they are enrolled. Current pay rates can be viewed at:
Veteran students must notify the VA Coordinator of any of the following:
Chapter 30, 1606, and 1607 Monthly Verification
All students who are receiving Chapter 30, Chapter 1606, and Chapter 1607 benefits must verify their monthly enrollment on the last day of each month or after. The benefit (monetary award) will not be released by the VA until this is done. Enrollment verification can be accomplished by using the VA toll-free telephone number 1.877.823.2378 or the WAVE feature found on the VA website www.gibill.va.gov.
