Benefits Request Overview

90 Day Tuition Deferment

The Spring 2024 deadline to complete VA Works to receive a VA benefits Tuition Deferment is 4:55 PM on Friday, 12 January 2024.

The Spring 2024 Veteran Tuition Deferment ends on Sunday, 7 April 2024.  

Students must ensure that by that date they have paid all fees to include New Grad Student fees, bookstore charges, ID card charges, housing costs and meal plans before that date to avoid being assessed late fees. 

The University does not offer payment plans or extensions of the payment deadline.

For students receiving less than the 100% rate of GI Bill® may contact our office for assistance estimating their remaining tuition debt to the university.

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 their VA Works 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 VA Works application PRIOR TO 4:55 p.m. on the FIRST FRIDAY of every semester. 

When is the 90 day tuition deferment application deadline?

4:55 p.m. on the FIRST FRIDAY of each semester. If a student submits their VA Works 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 VA Works application prior to the deadline, but recieved late payment fees and was dropped from their classes?
