Readmission for Activated Military
In accordance with the Department of Education’s regulation (34 C.F.R. 668.8), BU will allow active duty service members readmission to their program if they are temporarily unable to attend classes for less than 30 days within a semester due to a Military service obligation when such absence results in a withdrawal under institution policies. Service member must provide appropriate documentation as specified by the Department of Education.

Eligible Ch. 31 & 33 Recipients
Students believed to be entitled to educational assistance under chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, or chapter 33 Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits are instructed to first apply to the US Department of Veterans Affairs for a determination of eligibility. However, students will not be prohibited from attending or participating in the course of education from the period beginning on the date the student registers for classes and submits their Certificate of Eligibility to Boston University through the date payment from the US Department of Veterans Affairs is made to Boston University, or until 90 days from the date the student registers and submits their Certificate of Eligibility to BU, whichever is earlier, even if BU receives no proof of eligibility or remaining entitlement from the VA during that period.

Boston University will impose no penalty on any covered individual (including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities), nor will Boston University require anyone to borrow additional funds because of their inability to meet financial obligations to the University due to any delayed disbursement of funds from the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
