Once the VA Benefits user has been accepted by their selected school they should:
"The combined tuition benefits available to a student cannot exceed the student’s total tuition costs. Tuition payments received by a student under the Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33 veteran benefits) and Yellow Ribbon program are considered duplicative of any VTA and/or TAP award. Students receiving tuition assistance through these programs may, and in most cases will have their State VTA and/or TAP payment reduced or denied due to these other benefits."
NYU recognizes there are times when veterans who rely on monetary benefits from the Department of Veteran's Affairs and/or other external agencies are challenged by untimely payments. If you are an NYU student who is a veteran or military connected student who is in such a situation and need temporary assistance while waiting for delayed payments, please contact the Office of Financial Aid, or if you're uncertain which NYU office to contact, but have veterans or military affiliated related questions, you may reach out directly to: Alaska McInnis, Assistant Director of Institutional Engagement Email: email@example.com, Phone: 212-992-3764
