Students are encouraged to apply for financial aid and complete the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA).
Students who receive Chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, or Chapter 33, Post 9/11 GI Bill, benefits may be eligible for deferred tuition and fees. To qualify under Chapter 31, we must have an unexpired authorization form on file. For Chapter 33, the student must complete the VA Education Benefits Request Form and submit it to the Financial Aid Office, along with a copy of the Certificate of Eligibility or a Statement of Benefits from the eBenefits website. Under Chapter 33, tuition will be deferred based on the student’s percentage of eligibility. Tuition and fees not covered by the VA are the responsibility of the student. Madonna University will not assess deferred billing and/or late fees to a student who is unable to meet the financial deadline due to a delayed Chapter 31 or Chapter 33 payment from the VA.
Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to a student with the understanding and expectation that the student will attend the University for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student stops attending classes and alters the course load, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded. If a student receiving TA stops attending a course before 60% of the completion period, the University is required to determine how much of the TA was earned up to the time of withdrawal. If the TA is adjusted, the student may owe funds to the University. In accordance with Department of Defense (DoD) policy, Madonna University will return any unearned TA funds to the DoD per the following:
Madonna University will participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program for the 2020-21 academic year. Effective August 1, 2020, the tuition cap at private schools is $24,476 per academic year. If you exceed this amount, Madonna University will cover 50% of your unpaid tuition and fee charges, and the VA will match the same amount.
According to VA regulation, you must receive the Post 9/11 GI Bill at the 100% eligibility rate to qualify for the Yellow Ribbon Program. Also, you must be eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill at the time Yellow Ribbon funds are requested.
