VA Bridge Loan
Veterans and/or their dependents may be eligible for a VA Bridge Loan, which may be used to bridge a gap between TJC payment deadlines and the receipt of Veterans Administration funds. Eligible students should see the VA coordinator in the TJC Admissions office for details and processing.
If you would like to defer your tuition and fee payment date through a VA Bridge Loan, you MUST meet with the TJC Veteran’s Coordinator prior to the college payment of fees deadline. The VA Bridge Loan will be calculated and posted by the VA Coordinator.
If your tuition and fee benefits are paid directly to the college (Post 911, GI Bill, Chapter 33), then they will be posted to your account when received from the VA. If you receive a monthly payment from the VA (Chapter 30, 35, 1606, 1607), you must personally make payment to the Cashier’s Office for your deferred tuition and fees.
If the VA payment is not enough to cover your tuition and fee balance in full, then you are responsible for the remaining balance. The student is always responsible for making certain their tuition and fees are paid by deadlines.
For information on whether you may be eligible for other Military Exemptions or Waivers for Tuition and Fees, please contact the TJC Veterans Coordinator, located in the Admissions Office, White Administrative Service Center.
