Benefits Request Overview

90 Day Tuition Deferment

Due to the fact that VA education benefits can take 60 days or longer before payments are issued, OVS applies a 90 day tuition deferment to the account of every student that completes steps 1-5 on their Clockwork application PRIOR TO 4:55 p.m. on the FIRST FRIDAY of each semester. 

The 90 day tuition deferment ensures that while payments are pending from the VA, the student will not be:

  • Issued a late payment fee
  • Dropped from classes due to non-payment in those 90 days

Who is eligible?

All students (veterans and dependents) who complete steps 1-5 of their Clockwork application PRIOR TO 4:55 p.m. on the FIRST FRIDAY of every semester. 

When is the 90 day tuition deferment deadline?

4:55 p.m. on the FIRST FRIDAY of each semester. If a student submits their Clockwork application AFTER this deadline, they are NOT eligible for a tuition deferment and could be dropped from their classes and receive late payment fees. Students will be responsible for paying these fees prior to being able to be added back into their classes.

What if a student submitted their Clockwork application prior to the deadline, but recieved late payment fees and was dropped from their classes?
