Attention Veterans:

In order to avoid being dropped from courses for non-payment, please remember to submit your certification card within 10 days of registration to MJC Veterans Services. As a best practice, we encourage you to submit the certification card to our office (VRC) as soon as you register.

Failing to submit the Certification Worksheet within 10 days of registration may result in you being dropped from your planned courses.

Please see the policy below, which is posted on the college website:

“Pay 2 Stay: Fees are due upon registration. Students who do not have a zero balance at the end of a day, within ten days of registering for full-term classes, (day 1 being the day of registration) will be dropped for Non Payment of Fees if the semester hasn't already started. Students, who have a current active BOG fee waiver before registering, will not be dropped, but their accounts may become frozen and registration will be blocked if payment is not made within the 10 days. “

Once you submit the Certification Worksheet to MJC Veterans Services, our office contacts Enrollment Services to inform them that your tuition will be paid for by the V.A. and ensures that you are not dropped from classes for non-payment. However, this only applies to students who have submitted their Certification Worksheets on time.

Best Practice: Register for courses and immediately visit MJC Veterans Services to submit the Certification Worksheet to avoid being dropped.

Thank you
