A veteran or reservist who receives orders to report for duty will, in most cases, be eligible for a full refund. The student should visit the Registrar’s Office to complete the documentation required to notify the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs. A copy of the student’s orders should be provided to the Registrar’s Office. The VA form 21-4138 Statement of Support of Claim should be completed by the student to be included with VA form 1999b Notice of Change in Student Status.
Eligibility for VA education benefits will be held in abeyance until the veteran’s return to school. In other words, the remaining months of entitlement will be available to the veteran when he or she re-enrolls as a student.
