VA System Update
All VA Education Benefit Students,
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced that it was moving from their old system (VA-ONCE), to a new system (Enrollment Manager) in January 2023. However, the changed to the new system has been
extended to March 2023. This system is what schools’ use to certify students’ semester enrollments, and invoice tuition/fees to VA.
What does it mean? Our office will likely have no access to continue certifying students’ enrollments information to VA once the change is in effect/ and until the new system is operable.
MVSSC Plan of Actions? With the spring 2023 form NOW open, our SCOs will be working diligently to certify your enrollments to VA as quickly and accurately as possible in the order received –
First In-First Out (FIFO). We ask that you finalize your registration and submit your certification request accurately and with all required documentations to be processed by our office.
The certification process to VA is not automatic and can take up to 30 days to process. Delay in your accurate submission will impact the processing time and ultimately the
receipt of VA stipend/housing allowances.
DO NOT SUBMIT THE CERTIFICATION REQUEST UNTIL YOUR COURSES ARE FINALIZED TO AVOID A REJECTION /DELAY.
ALL CHANGES ARE REPORTED TO VA AND MAY RESULT IN AN OVERPAYMENT AND/OR DEBT.
