As part of the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, please be aware that an individual who is entitled to educational assistance under Chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, or Chapter 33, Post-9/11 GI Bill®* benefits, or Chapter 35, Survivors’ and Dependents’ Education Assistance, will be permitted to attend or participate in the course of education during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides to the education institution a certificate of eligibility (or a “Statement of Benefits” for Chapter 33 or a VAF 28-1905 for Chapter 31) for entitlement to the educational assistance under Chapter 31, 33 or 35 and ending on the earlier of the following dates:

  • The date on which payment from VA is made to the institution.
  • 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certification of eligibility.

New River Community College will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facility, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, 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 funding from VA under chapter 31, 33 or 35.

In accordance with Title 38 United States Code Section 3679(c), the following individuals shall be charged the in-state rate, otherwise considered a resident, for tuition purposes:
  • A veteran using educational assistance under either Chapter 30 (Montgomery G.I. Bill® -Active Duty Program) or Chapter 33 (Post-9/11 G.I. Bill®), of Title 38, United States Code, who lives in the Commonwealth of Virginia while attending a school located in the Commonwealth of Virginia (regardless of their formal state of residence).
  • Anyone using transferred Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits who lives in the state where the Institution of Higher Learning {IHL) is located, and the transferor is a member of the uniformed service serving on active duty.
  • A spouse or child using benefits under the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship {38 U.S.C. § 3311(b)(9) who lives in the Commonwealth of Virginia while attending a school located in the Commonwealth of Virginia (regardless of their formal state of residence).
  • A spouse or child using benefits under Survivors' and Dependents' Education Assistance {Chapter 35) living in the Commonwealth of Virginia while attending a school located in the Commonwealth of Virginia (regardless of their formal state of residence).
  • An individual using educational assistance under chapter 31, Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E), who lives in the Commonwealth of Virginia while attending a school located in the Commonwealth of Virginia (regardless of his or her formal state of residence) effective for courses, semesters, or terms beginning after March 1, 2019.
  • Anyone described above remains continuously enrolled (other than during regularly scheduled breaks between courses, semesters, or terms) at the same institution. Therefore, the described person must be enrolled in the institution and use educational benefits under Chapters 30, 31, 33 or 35 of Title 38, United States Code.
