Veterans Affairs Payment & Fees

Paying Tuition/Fees

SUBR allows you to pay tuition and fees either in its entirety at the time of registration or with a payment plan arranged through SUBR's Deferred Billing Office, located in W.W. Stewart Hall, Room #101 during registration week or J.S. Clark Administration Building, Room #319.

You must pay at the beginning of an enrollment period a minimum of 50% tuition and fees, plus a processing fee. The remaining balance must be paid in two payments according to established payment deadlines determined by the Deferred Billing Office.

Note: The SUBR Application Fee is waived for all U.S. veterans, per Louisiana's Board of Regents, the governing body for all institutions of Higher Education in the state.  Proof of current military service or a DD214 military separation form is required to provide this waiver.

Establishing your record (initial application) to receive VA benefits in the Regional VA Office in Muskogee, Oklahoma, usually takes some time. The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) stipulates that student-veterans cannot be certified to receive benefits until after classes begin during any enrollment period.

Therefore, your VA educational benefits may not have arrived in time to use them for tuition payment either at registration or by the first deadline (when basically 50% of tuition and fees are due) or even by the second or final payment deadlines.

Consequently, you should make your own arrangements to pay at least the first semester charges when the bill is due. After your Regional VA record is established and if you consistently maintain your enrollment status, you should receive your educational benefits as established by VA guidelines.
