Military & Veterans Services


The Veterans Affairs Center strives to reduce transition issues for Veterans and servicemembers by sponsoring Veteran support activities and promptly certifying education benefits in accordance with federal, state, and university regulations.

Veterans are afforded the same rights and must meet all academic requirements and maintain the same academic standards as any student attending Texas A&M University - Central Texas.

Changes to Post 9/11 Tuition and Fee Debt for Drops and Withdraws


The VA notified institutions of new legislation that was signed into law: Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020 (Public Law 116-315).

Section 109 of this legislation, effective immediately, changes how the VA will administer debts for tuition and fee payments made to the school for beneficiaries that drop or withdraw from classes.

Previously, when a student dropped or withdrew after the first day of the semester the VA would notify the student that there was a tuition and fee overpayment for the course/s that were dropped or withdrawn from and it was the responsibility of the student to repay the VA for reducing credit hours.

WHAT HAS CHANGED?

This is now the responsibility of the school to repay the tuition and fees that were paid by the VA. The school must return the payment to the VA for courses dropped or withdrawn from after the 100% refund period and the student will now be responsible for paying the tuition and fees to the school for the courses dropped or withdrawn from. An unpaid balance can affect future registration.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:

Take careful consideration when reducing credit hours after the 100% drop deadlines or submitting for a withdrawal without extenuating circumstances. We encourage you to consult with a school certifying official at the TAMUCT Military and Veteran Services Center if you are considering reducing credit or withdrawing from courses.

Book stipends and monthly housing allowance debts that are due to drops or withdrawals will still be the students responsibility to pay back to the VA.
 

Rounding Out to be Phased Out:


A VA student can round out a schedule with non-required courses to bring his/her course load up to a full-time schedule in his/her last term only. This allows students to continue to receive benefits at the full-time rate in their last term of enrollment, even though fewer credits are required to complete the program.

This procedure can be done only once per program.

In rounding out a full-time schedule, VA students may use any credit hour unit subject, including a subject that has previously been successfully completed (received a passing grade).

NOTE: Rounding Out will be phased out for terms beginning on or after August 1, 2021. Please see your academic advisor and plan ahead.
