When anyone was a 1L and used GI Bill or Vocational Rehab, were you reimbursed for your seat deposit? Our school has not been billing the VA for the seat deposit; rather, they are applying the seat deposit towards tuition but only billing the VA for tuition, minus the $400 seat deposit. I addressed it last year and waiting to see if our school fixes it. Anyone have the same issue at their school?
IIRC I paid the deposit, VA was billed whole tuition, then I had a positive balance with the school. Had to pick up my check.
Also, as to you have a deposit every year, I talked to the Registrar at my school, and after confirming that I wanted to attend and had GIBILL they waived all deadlines/deposits and didn't contact me until after the VA (mis)paid them, each semester. Although, sometimes IT wouldn't get the memo and my bbs account would be suspended. See what you can do.
