Beginning on August 1, 2021, Section 1010 of the new Isakson and Roe Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvements Act of 2020 will require all enrolled students, eligible for BAH, to electronically verify their enrollment each month with VA.  If a student fails to certify for two consecutive months, VA will withhold their BAH until the student certifies.

Students can verify their enrollment in one of two ways:

Text Messaging – Students who choose VA’s “Opt-In” feature will receive a text message each month prompting them to verify their enrollment status.

Telephone – Students may call the Education Call Center (ECC) at 888-442-4551 to verify their enrollment status.

If you are a student on the Fredericksburg Campus with questions or in need of certification assistance, please contact Patricia Sarkuti at or at 540-654-2140. If you are a student on the Stafford Campus, please contact Ryan Hastings at or at 540-286-8075.
