VA Education Benefits Program Information
For All Benefit Program Chapters:
You will be contacted through your OKSTATE email address regarding VA benefit questions or concerns. Keeping your OKEY Account current and checking your email frequently can prevent delays in processing your certification request.
The VA will process your certification in approximately 2 to 4 weeks. VA payments to students are made on the first day of the month for the previous month’s benefit.
Any change to your schedule affecting enrollment status after your Request for Certification form has been submitted can affect payments received from the VA. You will be responsible for returning overpayments to the VA.
If you are denied benefits from the VA, your courses must be dropped before the end of the refund period. You will be responsible for charges on your business services account after the refund period.
Chapter 30, Montgomery GI Bill® Active Duty and Chapter 1606, Montgomery GI Bill® Selected Reserve
You are required to verify your enrollment on the last day of each month online at https://www.gibill.va.gov/wave/index.do or by calling 1-877-823-2378 before you will receive your payment for that month.
If you will miss classes for short-term military leave or military training exercises, (example: Annual training for National Guard and Reserve members) contact your instructors as soon as possible regarding accommodations for coursework during your absence.
Chapter 31, Veterans Readiness & Employment, VR&E
You must be approved for a program of study at OSU-OKC by your VR&E Counselor prior to enrolling.
Chapter 31 / VR&E students are responsible for turning in signed original receipts for Bookstore purchases to the Business Services office via in-person, night drop, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bookstore purchases charged to your business services account will not be submitted to the VA for payment unless receipts are received by Business Services.
You will be responsible for Bookstore charges on your Business Services account if you fail to comply with this requirement.
Your OSU-OKC transcript will be made available to your VR&E Counselor upon their request.
Chapter 33, Post 9/11 GI Bill®
Tuition and fee benefits will be paid directly to your OSU-OKC Business Services account. OSU-OKC submits tuition and fee information to the VA after the 100% refund period ends. VA payments for Tuition and Fees will be posted to your Business Services account after the funds are received by OSU-OKC.
The Monthly Housing Allowance and Books and Supplies Stipend will be paid directly to you.
You are required to verify your enrollment each month to continue receiving housing or kicker payments. If the VA has your correct mobile phone number on file, you will receive a text message to confirm your enrollment.
