Advance payment of educational assistance allowance is intended to help students meet school-related and other expenses which are concentrated at the beginning of the fall term.
When a veteran, reservist, or other eligible person enrolls at a halftime rate or more, and is not eligible for an interval payment, he or she may elect, in writing, to be paid in advance for the first initial month or fraction thereof at the beginning of the term plus the amount payable for the following month.
Students should be aware that if they receive advance payments at the beginning of a fall term commencing in August, they will not receive their October benefit check until after November 1. If you are interested and eligible for advance pay, please contact Veterans and Military Services at least 45 days before the first day of classes for the fall semester.
Tutorial Assistance is available to eligible students to help with the cost of tutors.
A Veteran Work Study Program is available that is flexible around a student's schedule. This program is open to veterans who are enrolled and receiving educational benefits at ¾ time or more pay.
