The VA Refund Hold is a hold placed on our Post 9-11 GI Bill
student accounts to prevent refunds of potential overpayments by the VA. The VA
Refund Hold also prevents the refund of the College Opportunity Fund (COF) if
it is applied to a student’s account after the VA has been billed for tuition
and fees and has paid. The VA Refund Hold allows the Office of Veteran Student
Services to review a student’s account to verify that the VA paid correctly.
If you have a credit
on your account because you accepted financial aid, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Remove
VA Hold.” The OVSS will review your account and determine if the credit should
be refunded to you or not. If it is determined the credit should be refunded to
you, the VA Refund Hold will be removed temporarily to allow the funds to be
released and then be replaced on your account in case additional payments or
funding is received.
