Continuing Students Veterans Enrollment Report

The Veterans Enrollment Report must be completed each term to receive GI Bill® benefits. Remember, only courses that apply to your major can be submitted to the VA for payment. Please see your academic advisor or your degree audit report for assistance. 

Add/Drop

You will need to complete an add/drop card if you change courses after the submission of your Veterans Enrollment Report. Some things to remember if you add/drop:

  • Reducing credit hours can impact monthly stipends and cause overpayments.
  • Chapter 33-Post 9/11 students could owe tuition and fees. PAY ATTENTION TO DROP REFUND DATES. REFUNDS ARE PROCESSED DURING 100-PERCENT REFUND PERIOD.
  • We do not report increases in credit hours, tuition, and fees unless an add/drop card is completed.

After your initial Enrollment Report has been submitted, subsequent add/drop cards are processed on the following schedule:

  • After the last day to drop with 100-percent refund.
  • After the last day to drop with no grade.
  • After the last day to drop with a "W" grade.

Important Items to Remember

  • GI Bill Chapters 1606 (National Guard/Reserve), 30 (Montgomery or “Old” GI Bill), and 35 (Dependents Educational Assistance Program) do not pay tuition and fees. You will receive a monthly stipend.
  • Flex terms and summer terms are reported as separate enrollments and can affect monthly stipends. Please see a staff member if you have questions about your program and terms.
  • Certain financial aid can impact Post 9/11 (Chapter 33) benefits by reducing the amount of tuition and fees the school can report. The following aid is deemed “non-refundable” and is subtracted from your tuition and fee submission to the VA:
    • Ohio National Guard Scholarship Program (tuition only)
    • Ohio War Orphan Scholarship (tuition only)
    • Private scholarships (based on individual scholarship agreement)
    • Tuitio assistance
    • Fee remission
    • Graduate assistantships

    • Student health insurance-waiveable fee
    • Student legal fee-waiveable fee

TDY/Leave Due to Military Orders Policy

Wright State has a recommendation for faculty to work with you if you are called to duty, training, or TDY during a term. The VMC asks you to notify faculty as soon as possible (even prior to the term) if you know of the potential to miss classes. Faculty do their best to accommodate you when able; but, in some cases, withdrawal is the best option.
