Chapter 33: Enrollment Verification Process

High priority
If you are using your Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefit at Parker University, you are required to verify your enrollment at the end of each month to receive your Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) and/or kicker payments.

We encourage students to opt into text messaging, which is a simple, quick option for verifying monthly enrollment and ensuring you receive your MHA/kicker payments uninterrupted. You may call the Education Call Center (ECC) at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) to ensure that you receive the latest email updates on monthly enrollment verification and are able to opt-in to enrollment verification by text message.


Monthly and Subterm courses are certified separately, therefore the enrollment verification should be specific to the amount of hours you are enrolled in for that month/Subterm. If you are enrolled for 12 credit hours for your 4-month period of enrollment and each monthly course is 3 credit hours, you will verify your enrollment for 3 hours for the month/term for which you are verifying.


For more information, you may contact one of the school certifying officials or refer to the enrollment verification webpage where many helpful resources are highlighted, including Frequently Asked Questions.
