  1. New Scholarship Opportunity:  Liniger Family Honor, Service and Commitment Scholarship


  1. The VA will not inform CSU of your remaining GI Bill entitlement, which means you must keep CSU apprised when your benefits exhaust in order to avoid possible late transactions or billing to your account. 

The average time, according to the VA, for payment is 8 weeks. This, however, is not a definitive number for all of those who have been certified for the Spring 2014 term. If you would like to have a better idea of when to expect payment, we would recommend the following: 

You can either call the VA National Call Center at 1-888-442-4551 -- you can pose a question/concern in writing and get a reply back by going to, or you can contact our office.
