Advance payment provides funds at the beginning of a school term to help the student meet expenses concentrated at the beginning of the term. Advance payment is the amount payable for the initial month or portion of a month the semester begins plus the amount payable for the following month.
Students are eligible for advance payment when:
- The student requests advance pay, and
- There's more than 30 days between terms and break pay won't be paid and
- The student is enrolled at least halftime, and
- VA receives the advance payment request at least 30 days but not more than 120 days before the enrollment period.
Advance Payment Requests must be turned in no later than one month before the semester begins.
Advance Payment Request
At the end of each month Chapter 30, 1606 & 1607 students are required to verify their current enrollment status with the Veterans Regional Office in Muskogee, OK. Students are able to do so by either to the W.A.V.E. (Web Automated Verification of Enrollment) Website or by calling the Phone Automated System 1-877-823-2378.
This verification procedure is the responsibility of the student not the Veterans Affairs Office. A failure to complete this monthly verification will result in a non-payment of benefits to the student.
