Attention Veterans:

Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, VR&E) delayed payment
Due to a system issue on January 30, 2018, approximately 11,000, Chapter 31 (VR&E) payments were not processed and will be delayed.  This issue is limited to Chapter 31 payments only.
We apologize for the inconvenience.  We are aware of a payment processing delay and we are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.  At this time, we expect that your payment will be issued on February 6, 2018.
For additional questions or requests related to this issue, please contact your VR&E counselor for additional assistance.

Attention Veterans:

In order to avoid being dropped from courses for non-payment, please remember to submit your certification card within 10 days of registration to MJC Veterans Services. As a best practice, we encourage you to submit the certification card to our office (VRC) as soon as you register.

Access your Certification Card HERE

Failure to submit the Certification Card within 10 days of registration may result in you being dropped from your planned courses.

Please see the policy below, which is posted on the college website:

“Pay 2 Stay: Fees are due upon registration. Students who do not have a zero balance at the end of a day, within ten days of registering for full-term classes, (day 1 being the day of registration) will be dropped for Non Payment of Fees if the semester hasn't already started. Students, who have a current active BOG fee waiver before registering, will not be dropped, but their accounts may become frozen and registration will be blocked if payment is not made within the 10 days. “

Once you submit the Certification Worksheet to MJC Veterans Services, our office contacts Enrollment Services to inform them that your tuition will be paid for by the V.A. and ensures that you are not dropped from classes for non-payment. However, this only applies to students who have submitted their Certification Worksheets on time.

Best Practice: Register for courses and immediately visit MJC Veterans Services to submit the Certification Card to avoid being dropped.
