AAU, Associations Express Concern of Rollout Timing of VA’s New Enrollment Manager System for Veterans’ Benefits

AAU joined ACE and 36 other higher education associations in sending a letter to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to express concerns with the timing of instituting the VA’s new enrollment management system for certifying GI bill benefits in January 2023. The associations’ chief concern is a delay in veterans receiving their education benefits, given that the peak certification period for spring semester occurs in January. This timing will also be deleterious to the ability of veterans seeking first-time benefits, university staff that need time for hands-on training for the new system, and the ability of universities to properly meet their obligations under VA regulations. As an alternative, this letter proposes that the timing of the rollout occur during the summer of 2023.
