VA Deferred Payment Plan
Veterans and dependents of veterans can make special financial arrangements through HCC’s Veterans’ Deferred Payment Plan by completing a Veterans Education Benefits Promissory Note. This is an in-house program that differs from the college’s Tuition Payment Plan. The Veterans’ Deferred Payment Plan allows payment of tuition and fees to be deferred, interest free, until students’ Veterans Benefits are received. Students who use HCC’s Veterans’ Deferred Payment Plan must pay their bill prior to registering for the next term. Payment is due by April 1 for the winter/spring semester, August 1 for the summer semester, and November 1 for the fall semester. Howard Community College will not prevent a student’s enrollment, assess a late fee or penalty, restrict college access to resources or require students using chapter 31 or 33 education benefits to secure alternative or additional funding due to the delay in VA payments to the college. The Veterans' Deferred Payment Plan must be renewed each semester.
Veterans are also entitled to other forms of financial assistance such federal financial aid, work study and scholarships. For more information visit Pay for College.
