Unless Advance payment is requested and received, you will be required to pay all tuition, fees and books out of pocket.  The Chapter 33/ Post 9-11 GI Bill pays tuition and fees directly to the school.  If you qualify, a monthly housing allowance and annual book stipend are paid to the student.

Confirm your residency status during the admissions process.  VA only pays in-state rates, if you are an out of state student you will have to pay the difference before you can be certified.
