Veterans and Dependents
The University Registrar's Office provides information for all veteran benefits and their dependents. We process all official certification of enrollment and program changes to the Department of Veterans Affairs in Buffalo, N.Y. Please contact our office if you have any questions.
Procedure for Payment Deferment for Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill Dependents
In view of the large number of dependent applications received by Veterans Affairs (VA) under the Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, and the potential for delays in the receipt of the Certificate of Eligibility (COE) forms, Radford University will defer payment and waive late fees for fall Semester or the spring semester upon the presentation of the following documents:
- Screenshot of the DOD Transferability of Education Benefits (TEB) website showing a Request Approved status.
- Copy of the dependent’s submitted VA Form 22-1990E, Application for Transfer of Entitlement (TOE).
This documentation must be submitted to the Student Accounts Office, Box 6922, Radford, VA 24142. Documentation may also be submitted by fax to (540) 831-5501 or as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Student Accounts Office will then notify the Registrar's Office.
Payment of tuition and fees will be deferred to 45 days after payment deadline. The deferment may be extended another 30 days upon written request or email sent to the contact information above with an update on the status of the application.
