School Compliance for Veterans Benefits

The Michigan School of Psychology is approved for the education of veterans under all applicable public laws relating to veterans training. These laws provide for educational funding for veterans and require reporting by MSP on enrollment, progress and academic standing. MSP complies with all VA reporting requirements pertaining to enrollment and academic progress. Upon approval, the “Certificate of Eligibility” letter must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office. Any covered individual is permitted to attend and participate in the course of education during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides to MSP this “Certificate of Eligibility” for entitlement to educational assistance under chapter 31 or 33. MSP will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, the library, or other facilities, or require students to borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to MSP due to delayed disbursement funding from the VA under chapter 31 or 33.
