The VA recognizes different start and stop dates as different terms. You need to be enrolled in 12 credits to maintain a full time status during a traditional 16 week semester. To receive the full time stipend you must have at least one face to face class at all times during the semester. If you have classes that are shorter than 16 weeks please contact us for guidance: 786-6962

Using Post 9-11/ Chapter 33 benefits: Certification and Federal Aid Disbursement Process
For Chapter 33 recipients, UAA submits two certifications to the VA each term. An initial certification is submitted to notify the VA of term dates and credit hours to kick start your BAH and book stipend benefits and a final certification is submitted after the add/drop deadline to report tuition and fee amounts for certified courses. This is to avoid large overpayments or underpayments made to UAA if changes to students' schedules are done during add/drop period.Tuition and fees will appear as an outstanding balance on your student account until payment for certified courses is received but most Chapter 33 students' accounts are flagged for deferment so that no late fees are assessed to tuition and fee balances pending VA payment.Note: Chapter 33 recipients who have been rated at less than 100% eligibility, who are taking course work inapplicable to degree plan, or who have charges on their accounts that will not be paid by the VA (book store charges, parking permits, housing and meal plans, etc.) are required to make payment by the payment deadline to avoid a late fee.Students who receive federal financial aid may receive multiple refunds each semester. Students whose federal financial aid exceed their bill may receive a refund prior to the add/drop deadline. After the add/drop deadline, when we submit your final certification, accounting services will refund financial aid based on the anticipated amount we expect from the VA. UAA will use your federal aid refunds for charges that will not be paid by the VA, to the extent allowable under law. As a result of the refund, a balance due will appear on your student account equal to the pending VA payment.
