Am I Eligible?

To review available benefit programs and determine whether or not you are eligible, visit www.gibill.va.gov. You can also call the VA Call Center, at 1-888-442-4551.

Monthly Verification of Enrollment

On the last day of each month, you must verify your monthly enrollment directly to the VA, if you are using Chapters 30, 1606, or 1607. Chapters 31, 33, and 35 students do not have to verify. If you fail to verify monthly, you will not receive your benefits. To verify your enrollment:

Use the VA Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE)

or

call 1-877-823-2378

Maintaining VA Benefits

VA benefits could be suspended if benefit recipients do any of the following:
  1. Don't change your major without filling in a Form 1995, your eligibility will change and your classes may not be eligible for the new major.
  2. Don't drop classes without notifying the IU Southeast Registrar's Office Certifying Official, howellj@ius.edu. IU Southeast must submit enrollment changes to VA. Dropping classes may change your eligibility and could cause VA to adjust your certification.
  3. Don't get an "I" incomplete grade, without thinking thru the consequences. Any "I" that you complete in a subsequent semester will not be counted toward that semester's credit for certifying eligibility.
  4. Don't get a "FN" grade, for stopping attending, or a "FNN" grade for never attending, your class(es). VA benefits will not cover class(es) when you stop attending or never attended. The IU Southeast Registrar's office must report your last day of attendance. Possible repercussion is requiring the recipient to pay back retroactive benefits to the last day of attendance.

Reporting Changes

Reporting Changes in Enrollment:

Whenever you add or drop a class, you must provide a updated copy of your class schedule to the IU Southeast VA Certifying Official in the Registrar's Office. Changes in enrollment can be verified by you during your monthly verification through WAVEor the automated telephone system. Failure to report changes signifies a falsification of your educational status. If overpayment of benefits results from non-reporting (falsifying) changes, this is viewed by the VA very seriously and you will be required to pay back any overpayment.

Reporting Changes in Program of Study (Changing Majors):

If you change your program of study (major), you must notify the IU Southeast VA Certifying Official in person and complete a Form 1995 - Request for Change of Program.

Certification of Eligibility - Semester

We use VA-ONCE online certification system for VA educational benefits, but we cannot do so until you've contact the VA Certifying Official. The VA Certifying Official must certify your records each semester, complete the Education Benefit Worksheet (See Forms) and attach your class schedule, this is how your enrollment and credit hours are certified, and if you are receiving the Post 9/11 GI Bill™ Benefit, your tuition/fees are paid. It takes the VA Regional Office approximately 8 to 12 weeks to complete the certification process. So the earlier we hear from you, the better chance your benefit money will be available when classes begin.

VA Audits:

The Veteran's Affairs Office periodically conducts educational benefit audits. The audit includes looking at ALL Education Records to include but not limited to transcripts, degree and satisfactory progress, tuition & fee records, etc. If information from your academic record differs from what you or the IU Southeast Registrars Office has reported to the VA, there are potential's for overpayments and possible denial of future benefits.

Vocational Rehabilitation

Students work with the U.S. Veterans Affairs Office and meet with a case manager. Contact Jack Howell with any questions or for contact information with the VA.
