Using G.I. Bill?
If you are working on the MEM by Portable Media, and you indicate that you will be using a G.I. Bill chapter on your course registration, that information is automatically forwarded to ODU's VA Services for certification.
Tuition and fees for MEM certified for Post 9/11 G.I. Bill Chapter 33 are paid directly to ODU from the VA.
MEM courses approved for other G.I. Bill Chapters (30 and 31) must be paid in full at the time of registration. These costs are reimbursed to you by the VA. Once payments are submitted by the VA or by the student, these funds are applied to reach a zero balance in your student account. You can view your student account balance in LEO Online.
