Active Duty service members and their spouses can use Ch33 benefits for their tuition and fees, but they aren’t eligible for Yellow Ribbon Program funding, nor will they receive the Ch33 Basic Allowance for Housing (because, in most cases, the military is already providing housing or an allowance).
The amount of your BAH (also referred to by the VA as the “MHA” for ch33 participants) is based on the military’s BAH for “an E-5 with dependents.” The rate is determined using the Cambridge zip code, 02138, which you can plug into the DoD’s online BAH calculator to see the current year’s rate.
Your BAH payment is pro-rated to match your % eligibility for ch33 funding. Students attending half-time or less or students using the benefit while on Active Duty (or spouses using the transferred benefit while their spouse is on Active Duty) are not eligible to receive BAH payments.
Eligible students should submit their benefits application through the VA’s website (Form 22-1990.) The VA will produce a Certificate of Eligibility. Submit your Certificate of Eligibility along with a Notice of Student Enrollment form to your school’s Financial Aid Office (see Contacts) to request certification. A new Notice of Student Enrollment form is required for every subsequent academic year, but as long as there is no change to your eligibility, you do not need to resubmit the VA’s Certificate of Eligibility.

If the refund is issued by direct deposit, funds are typically received in the bank account established in your my.harvard...
