How Do I Finish Repaying for Classes I Had to Drop?

Q: I need to finish repaying on my G.I. Bill after I had to drop classes. Whom would I contact or speak with to find my remaining balance and how to repay, so that I may attend school this coming semester. Thank you for your time.

A: First, are you sure you will have to pay anything back? If you are in an overpayment situation, you would have heard from the VA Debt Management with the amount you owe.

The VA gives GI Bill users a one-time drop of up to six credits for free regardless of the reason, so that is why I asked if you are sure if you will have to pay anything. If you dropped six credits or less, and you have never dropped a class before, then I’m thinking you don’t owe anything.

However, if you know you owe and you are trying to be proactive, then contact the VA by phone at 1-800-827-0648 between the hours of 7:30am to 6:00pm CST. Or you can email them at: [email protected]. If you need to mail them, their address is:

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
Debt Management Center
P.O. Box 11930
St. Paul, MN 55111
