GI Bill Benefit Impact due to COVID-19:

On Saturday, March 21, 2020, the President signed into law S. 3503, which clarifies how the Department of Veterans Affairs should treat in-person courses of study that convert to distance learning formats due to health-related situations and other emergencies. If your class was originally scheduled to be an in-person then your benefit payments will not change due to the change in mode of instruction to online due to COVID-19. This law has been extended until December 2021.

Active Duty Withdraw due to COVID-19:

If you are mobilized, called to active duty, or experience a significant change of mission or operational tempo due to COVID-19 and need to withdraw from classes there are numerous options available to you. To help you understand your options please contact the Veterans Success Center at

If you have questions regarding Tuition Assistance, please contact your service branch’s education office.
