Veterans Benefits and Transaction Act
In accordance with the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, PTC will permit all Covered Individuals (students receiving a Ch. 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill, or Ch. 31 Voc-Rehab benefits) to attend or participate in the course of education during the period beginning on the date in which the Covered Individual provides to PTC a Certificate of Eligibility* for entitlement to educational assistance under 38 U.S. Code, Chapter 31 or 33 and ending on the earlier of the following dates:
- The date on which payment from VA is made to the institution
- 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certificate of eligibility.
PTC will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of that person’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from the VA.
PTC may require Chapter 31 or 33 students to take the following actions:
1. Submit a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance no later than the first day of a course of education, and/or
2. Submit a written request to use such entitlement, and/or
3. Provide additional information necessary to the proper certification of enrollment by PTC, and/or
4. Require additional payment or impose a fee for the amount that is the difference between the amount of the student’s financial obligation and the amount of the VA education benefit disbursement.
* The Certificate of Eligibility may also include a Statement of Benefits obtained from the Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) website e-Benefits, or a VAF 28-1905 form for Chapter 31 authorization purposes.
