Chapter 33 Veteran Students, be advised the following educational change below:
Isakson & Roe: Sec. 1010
MHA payments will be held in the meanwhile.
- As of August 1, 2021, Chapter 33 students must verify their enrollment status each month to continue receiving their monthly housing allowance (MHA) and/or kicker payments. This change will be implemented in phases, starting with students enrolled at a Non-Degree (NCD) facility
- Students are asked to verify their enrollment status relative to what the SCO has reported on their behalf. This is not attendance verification
- Students can verify their enrollment status in one of two ways:
- Text Messaging – Students who choose VA’s “Opt-In” feature will receive a text message each month prompting them to verify their enrollment status
- Telephone – Students may call the Education Call Center (ECC) at 888-442-4551 to verify their enrollment status
- How MHA payments are altered from this process:
- Students who reply ‘Yes’ to the verification text or confirm their enrollment status hasn’t changed by phone will have MHA payments released as usual
- Students who reply ‘No’ or report a change by phone will prompt the VCE to review for updated enrollment information from the SCO. If no updated information is pending, the VCE will contact the SCO to request an update be submitted.
