We strongly suggest submitting your military transcripts as soon as you apply to CSUMB. Basic Training/Boot Camp credits may meet a lower division General Education requirement.
It is your responsibility to inform Veterans Services Office of any schedule changes immediately so that your benefit certification can be adjusted as necessary.
Courses in which you receive a "W" or "NC" grade are considered "non-punitive" and you may be required to return benefit funds back to the VA
No. The VA will only pay for courses that meet outstanding requirements for your degree.
The VA is the "last-payer" when it comes to tuition and fee charges. This means that if you are the recipient of a "tuition-specific" scholarship, the scholarship must be applied to your account FIRST and the remaining balance will be covered by the VA.
No. The Cal Vet Waiver only covers state tuition charges. It is your responsibility to pay all required campus fees, housing and meal plan charges by the fee deadline.
The Cal Vet Waiver can NOT be applied to any programs offered through Extended Education (including Open University and ACE).
No. The Cal Vet Waiver only covers state tuition charges. Winter and Summer terms are offered through Extended Education which does not charge "state tuition".
