NASFAA signed on to a letter sent by the American Council on Education urging the Department Veterans Affairs (VA) to delay the transition to a new enrollment management system for certifying GI bill benefits. The Education Service announced earlier this month that its current enrollment management system, VA-ONCE, will end on Jan. 13, 2023, and VA will transition to a new system, Enrollment Manager, by the end of January. The higher education organizations say that the rollout plan for the new system does not give enough time for campuses to prepare with less than three weeks. Additionally, January is peak certification period, which means there could be delays to veterans’ benefits, among other issues.
