Dear School Certifying Officials,

As you are aware, effective August 1, 2019 schools are not allowed to penalize or prohibit a GI Bill student from attending or participating in courses while awaiting VA payment (for up to 90 days) as required by Section 103 of the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018.

Education Service has developed a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for students and School Certifying Officials to use to learn more about Section 103.  The FAQs can be found on Education Service’s website using the following link –  

Thank you for your ongoing support and participation.
