Enrollment certifications are processed on a weekly basis, in the order in which the Intent to Enroll forms are received.
Allow 8-10 weeks for total processing. Benefit payments are made directly to the student, unless advance payment is authorized.
MGIB-Active Duty (Chapter 30), MGIB-Selective Reserve (Chapter 1606) and the Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP) must verify their enrollment each month to receive payment for that month. Your enrollment can be verified starting on the last calendar day of the month by using our Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) at https://www.gibill.va.gov/wave or by calling 1-877-823-2378.
If you have a check mailed, you can expect your monthly benefit payment approximately 14 days after you verify your enrollment. If you have your benefits sent to a direct deposit account, you can expect your payment within 7 days of verifying your school attendance.
NOTE: Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehab), Chapter 33/33 TOE (Post-9/11) and Chapter 35 (Survivors and Dependents) are not required to verify their enrollment each month.
Chapter 33/33 TOE (Post-9/11) Tuition and Fees payments will be sent directly to WSU. All other chapters will be expected to pay for their tuition or set up a Installment Agreement with the Office of Accounts Receivable during Fee Payment of each semester.
