Responsibilities of Students Receiving VA Benefits

Students receiving VA benefits have the responsibility to:

  • Submit a copy of your course schedule to the VA Office each semester to complete the necessary paperwork to certify VA benefits.
  • Immediately report any changes to your term schedule to the VA office.
  • Verify your attendance monthly. Chapter 30, 1606 and 1607 need to verify attendance at the end of each month on VA WAVE (www.gibill.va.gov/wave/index.do) or call the attendance verification number, 888-823-2378.  Chapter 33 and 35 receive a check every month once they are certified and are not required to verify attendance. Chapter 35 NCD students are mailed a monthly verification form (VA Form 22-8979). 
  • Report a change of program of study. Chapters 30, 33, 1606, and 1607 are required to fill out and submit a VA form 22-1995 to the CF VA Office or Enrollment Services Center. Those who are Chapter 35 require a VA form 22-5495. 
  • Notify the DVA and the VA office of any change of address. Verify your enrollment with the Regional Processing Office by calling 1-877-823-2378 or by using W.A.V.E. (www.gibill.va.gov/wave/index.do)
  • Meet all other standards required by the VA to receive payments. Visit the CF VA Office for more information.
