The U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs approves applications and makes decisions about eligibility, payments, and issuance of checks. (Please visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website www.gibill.va.gov for more information.) The V.A. pays for classes appropriate to your declared major only. You must submit all necessary documents to the Records Office and participate in a Veteran’s Orientation session before registering. Also meet with an advisor/counselor prior to registration.
Each Veteran’s Affairs Certifying Official is responsible for certifying and monitoring Veterans’ enrollment, academic progress, and other academic information. For HawaiiCC, contact David Loeding at 934-2705 BEFORE the semester begins.
Chapter 31 Veterans should also contact Karen Kāne at 934-2725 [V/TTY] or e-mail email@example.com for disability accommodations.

Chapter 33 payments for tuition and fees are paid directly to the University approximately six weeks after receiving certification from the campus V.A. Certifying Official. Refunds due to changes in registration after the first day of the term will be sent to the student. Refunds due to non-attendance will be sent to the V.A. If funds are returned to the V.A. because you did not officially withdraw from the University, you will be responsible for all tuition and fee charges incurred.

MyCAA payments are paid directly to the University. You must bring or send a copy of your approved Financial Assistance Form to HawCC’s Business Office at least 48 hours prior to the payment deadline. This will ensure that an invoice is sent and grades will be posted for classes in which you are registered. An approval form is required each semester you register.
If the MyCAA program does not make a payment for your tuition for any reason after being billed by the University, you will be responsible for paying any unpaid balances on your student account.
