Post-9/11 GI Bill Payments for Adult and Graduate Students
Post-9/11 GI Bill tuition and fees benefits are paid directly to CCU.
Books/Supplies and Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) benefits are paid directly to the student.
Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon tuition and fees payments will be set up as a scholarship from the VA and (in the case of the Yellow Ribbon match) from CCU. In other words, once students have established their eligibility under the Post-9/11 GI Bill and have registered for classes, CCU awards the Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon scholarship amounts to the students' accounts. Any remaining balances due will be the student's responsibility.
Students receiving the Post-9/11 GI Bill at the maximum benefit rate are not eligible for the active duty military tuition discount.
Students eligible for College Opportunity Fund (COF) will be awarded this grant before any VA funding is applied.
Each semester CCU will certify courses after the add/drop period to ensure student enrollment and verify VA benefits paid.
Course withdrawals and late drops will result in an adjustment to the certification dates to reflect student’s Last Date of Attendance. Please contact
before an expected withdrawal or late drop to discuss the possible impact of a VA overpayment.

Post-9/11 GI Bill Payments and Financial Aid
Students receiving VA benefits are eligible for Federal and State financial aid. GI Bill funding is not reduced by the amount of Pell Grant or Federal Direct Stafford Loans the student is eligible to receive. VA benefits are reduced by the amount of the student’s College Opportunity Fund (COF) eligibility. Most CCU scholarships also reduce the amount of VA benefit the student may receive.
Federal and state financial aid funds will not be refunded to a student receiving VA benefits until the following takes place:
All courses have been certified;
The VA processes the enrollment certification;
VA funds are received by CCU; and
VA funds are posted to the student’s account.
Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits for tuition and fees are paid directly to the school on behalf of the student. VA funding is prorated by the student’s benefit eligibility. If there is still a balance owed, federal and/or state funds will be applied to the account. Any remaining credit balance, if applicable, will be refunded to the student.
VA funds are received by CCU and then posted to the student’s account; funds are not disbursed directly from the VA to the student’s account. VA payments sent to CCU may take up to 10 days to process and post on the student’s account.
Changes in student enrollment may result in delays in course certification and the timing and amount of VA funding.
Students can track their benefits on the GI Bill website by clicking on the E-Benefits link:
Montgomery GI Bill Payments for Adult and Graduate Students
GI Bill payments are made each month based on the student's enrollment status for the month. Typically, the money is available within four to seven business days following the end of the calendar month. Payments are made directly to the student, so a direct deposit arrangement with Veterans Affairs is highly encouraged. To set up or change direct deposit information, please call 877-838-2778.
Since tuition payments are due at the time of registration and GI Bill payments are received on a monthly basis throughout the semester, CCU has made available a Third Party Deferred Payment Option to allow GI Bill students to defer payment of their tuition until after the end of the current semester. Most students receiving GI Bill benefits elect to participate in this plan.
Veterans Affairs administers education benefits using both a "traditional" semester program and a "non-traditional" semester program. The rules for CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS) programs are considered non-traditional. Payments for CAGS students are directly dependent upon the start and end dates of each class. If you are enrolled in one of CCU's CAGS degree programs, please contact Service Central at 303-963-3230 or
if you need more information about how your benefits will be calculated.
Students who receive GI Bill benefits may also be eligible to receive Federal financial aid. Financial aid eligibility can be determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at
