Each term the VA Rep will notify the VA as to how many credits the student is currently enrolled. In addition: Chapter 30, 33 and chapter 1606 students must verify their enrollment monthly by Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) or by Interactive Voice Response (IVR). The preferred method is WAVE, which includes features not in IVR. When chapter 30 and 1606 students are awarded benefits, the award letter they receive describes WAVE and IVR.

WAVE allows students to verify their enrollment on the Internet. Students must be currently enrolled in an approved educational program and must have a current benefit award to use WAVE.

IVR allows students to "phone in" (877-823-2378) their monthly verifications.

NOTE: The monthly verification of enrollment procedure hasn't been adopted for chapter 32 and for chapter 35 Institution of Higher Learning (IHL) students. Instead, schools are mailed verification forms (VAF 22-6553) periodically to complete and to return for these students.
