Will I be charged a late fee or denied access to classes or other services if payment of my VA Benefit is delayed?

Harvard University fully complies with Section 103.1.(b) of the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018. For students who are covered under Chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation, and Chapter 33, Harvard University will not impose any penalty on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement of funding from the VA under Chapter 31 or Chapter 33.  Covered students will not be prevented from attending or enrolling in courses, will not be charged late fees, and will not be otherwise denied access to University services due to late payment from the VA until 90 days after the University has certified tuition and fees to the VA following the receipt of a Certificate of Eligibility or Statement of Benefits.  The Certificate of Eligibility or Statement of Benefits should be provided to the Financial Aid Office of the covered individual's school prior to the start of classes, along with the Notice of Student Enrollment, to ensure that benefits are processed in a timely manner.
