Current ECU VA Students Utilizing the GI Bill

Enrollment Certification Renewal is not automatic

You must submit the East Carolina Request for Benefits Form as soon as you register for the following term to re-activate your benefits and prevent a lapse in payment. Without a new benefits form, your payments will stop. You must notify this office if you change your major, withdraw or add or drop classes. Failure to do so may result in a debt with the VA.

The VA will be notified of failure to maintain standards of attendance, progress, or conduct: When a student has failed to maintain the prescribed standard of attendance, progress, or conduct, the school must promptly notify VA so that VA can discontinue benefit payments in accordance with the law. If a student's progress or conduct becomes unsatisfactory, the termination date assigned by the school will be the last day of the term or other evaluation period in which the student's progress or conduct became unsatisfactory. In situations involving unsatisfactory attendance, benefits will be discontinued based on the student's last date of attendance as reported by the school.

Chapter 30, 1606, and 1607 veterans will not receive payment until they have also verified their monthly attendance directly with the VA. Enrollment can be verified starting on the last calendar day of the month by using the Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) at or by calling the toll free Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telephone line at 1-877-823-2378.
