Military Payment for Tuition and Fees


Delta State University proudly serves member of the United States military. This policy outlines payment of tuition by military educational benefits.




Students paying tuition with military benefits under Chapter 33, Post-9/11 GI Bill, and Chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, will be removed from the class cancellation process each term, provided they meet the following requirements:

  • Students must submit a Certificate of Eligibility for entitlement to Chapter 33 educational assistance or a VAF 28-1905 form for Chapter 31 authorization purposes no later than the first day of a class, or the SCO must be able to confirm eligibility with the VA
  • Submit the fully executed VA Certification Information Sheet to the School Certifying Official indicating the request to use benefits for the term by the class cancellation date for the term.
  • Submit the fully executed Verification of VA Enrollment Sheet to the School Certifying Official for the term by the class cancellation date for the term.

If a student meets the above requirements, Delta State University will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or require that a student borrow additional funds because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the Institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under chapter 31 or 33.

In the event the expected benefits are not received or there is a portion of tuition not covered, the student will be responsible for the outstanding balance due.  Also, a hold will be placed on the student’s account on the last payment due date of the term and the account may be turned over to a collection agency for payment.
