Wright State University will not impose any:
- penalty, including the assessment of late fees
- the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities

on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement of funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs under Chapters 31 Vocational Rehabilitation or 33 Post 9/11.
