Do I have to pay the application fee?
- The deposit?
- For books?
- Tuition or fees?
Students receiving CH 31 benefits will most likely have no out-of-pocket expenses to start school at The University of Tampa.
Students should assist in coordinating the payment of various expenses:
- Application fee:
- Students should seek reimbursement through your CH31 counselor for any application fees.
- Indicate that you are a veteran on your admissions application. Contact your admissions counselor when you are admitted, and tell them you are fully reimbursed by the VA using CH 31 benefits.
- Complete form 22-1905 with your CH 31 counselor. Bring the 22-1905 to your School Certifying Official. Bring a copy of the 22-1905 to the Bursar’s Office and request a books voucher. Keep you receipt. Bring your receipt back to the Bursar’s Office so that they may send an invoice for your books to your CH 31 counselor.
- Schedule your classes with the help of your University of Tampa admissions counselor, or The University of Tampa Academic Advising Office. After your schedule is complete, request that your School Certifying Official complete your Enrollment Certification (this process involves sending the VA information about your classes and enrollment).
What does the School Certifying Official do?
Your school certifying official submits online form 22-1999, Enrollment Certification
, to notify the VA that you’re currently registered and attending classes. The SCO will certify your enrollment every term prior to the start of each term. The SCO will also monitor your enrollment and report changes in enrollment to the VA. Changes in enrollment may create adjustments in your benefits payout.
