UPDATED 11/1/18

Veterans Holds should be released.  Check your account for holds and deal with all other holds too.  Vets holds shold all be gone from fall 2018

The VA is experiancing on average 2 weeks long delay in payments. 6-7 Weeks after we submit in the VA system.


Completed Certifications. (if submitted with the correct and separate sessions and class numbers)

CH33 submited by 10/26- including final certs for ontime submissions-up to Late Batch 2

NON-CH33 submitted by 10/21 up to late batch 2


Before Calling check if you have been certified by loging in to your my.uttyler.edu student center

Look at your Veterans Hold.  That start date is the date you were certified.

CH33 and Hazlewood look at your financial aid.

If you still wish to inquire you need to call the VA as once we have submitted it you are waiting for the VA to process and then set it to pay and waiting for it to pay on the VA payment schedule.  Phone: (800) 827-1000)

All the 7wk1 tuition was recalculated on 8/22 and that is slowing down tuition calculation and 7w1 and 7w2 processing on our end.



 The VA Has said we can certify all campus locations.

  • We will start CH33/CH31 certification for all locations on 8/2/18 in the order we received you request.
    • Provided your certification request is submitted accurately by 8/3/18
      • Your bill should be paid by the due date.
  • CH33 Requests submitted after 8/3/18 you must pay the bill if you still have a balance due on 8/23/18.
    • Check your my.uttyler account to see if you have a bill due.
    • Check your Student email and read all emails we send you completely.  
    • Please do not contact us before the 4th week of class.
      • Calling us delays certification-ie when we will get to paying your bill and submit your enrollment to the VA.
      • Late request will be processed after CH30/35/1606
  • Certifications will have to be amended for zip code once the system is changed.
    • Houston and Palestine BAH Rates will be affected.
    • Please contact the VA about questions pertaining to BAH and Certification amendments when the zip codes are entered.
  1.  Forever GI Bill changes.
    1. BAH will be based on where classes are physically taken.
    2. The VA Enrollment Certification Computer System has to be modified to account for different campus locations for each class.
      1. It was supposed to be completed on 7/30 but has been delayed.
  2. CH. 31 VocRehab-Your VocRehab Councilor would be able to tell you if it will affect you.

  3. CH30/35/1606 processing will begin the first week of class.
  4. Nursing clinicals
    1. Are embedded as a lab in your classes and not as separate classes.
      1. As it stands now we cannot separate the class from the clinicals.
        1. You enroll in one class which contains both the class and an embedded lab.
        2. We understand on your class schedule you may see both class and lab but what matters is what you are enrolled in.
        3. You cannot be certified both for credit hours and work/clinical/internship hours for the same class.
      2. Labs which are separate have thier own normal class number and not a "L" at the end of the class which it is a lab for.
