Veterans Benefits and Transition Act
Sylvester Consultants, Inc. is compliant with the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, section 3679 of title 38.
NOTE: A Covered Individual is any individual who is entitled to educational assistance under chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, or chapter 33, Post- 9/11 GI Bill Benefits.
SCI must permit any covered individual to attend or participate in the course of education during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides to SCI a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under chapter 31 or 33 (or a VAF 28-1905 form for chapter 31 authorization purposes) 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 certificate of eligibility.
SCI will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, 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 or 33.
SCI requires the following of their Ch. 31 or 33 students wishing to utilize their educational benefits:
Submit a COE or Statement of Benefits by the first day of classes
Submit a written request to be certified
Provide any additional information needed for certification
Please note: SCI will hold a student responsible for any portion of tuition and other fees not covered by the VA (ex: room & board charges).
Delayed VA Payments
Under S2248PL 115- 407 Section 103, SCI will not impose a late fee, denial of access to facilities, or other penalty against a veteran or eligible dependent due to a late payment of tuition and/or fees from the VA up to the certified benefits amount. Any portion of the student bill not covered by VA benefits is still expected to be settled by the due date.
Federal Program Benefits
Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33)
