Veteran News

VA-funded students are reminded that the VA does not pay benefits over breaks.  Please remember there is a six-week break between Summer and Fall Quarters.  Summer Quarter ends on August 16th, which means benefits for August will be prorated from August 1st through the 16th, which means your housing allowance will be about half of what it normally is.  You won’t be paid between Summer and Fall Quarters.  The first day of Fall Quarter is September 26th, so your housing allowance for September will be prorated from the 26th to the 30th.  Save some money or take steps to mitigate this break.
