Post-9/11 GI Bill Payments for the College of Undergraduate Studies
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 will award the Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon scholarship amounts to the students' accounts after all other applicable scholarships and grants have been applied. Any remaining balances due will be the student's responsibility.
Students eligible for the College Opportunity Fund (COF) will be awarded this grant before any Post-9/11 funding is applied.
Each semester CCU will certify CUS courses before the term begins. Course schedule changes made after certification may jeopardize VA benefits. Students are encouraged to lock-in their registration by these certification dates:
Fall semester – classes certified August 1
Winter semester – classes certified December 1
Spring semester – classes certified January 1
Summer semester – classes certified May 1
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.
