Initial payments may take as long as eight to ten weeks to activate. Students filing under Chapters 30, 35, and 1606 will be given retroactive pay from the start of the semester, and continue to receive monthly installments thereafter.

Continuing students should receive their benefits within six to eight weeks.

Chapter 33 Veterans should receive their BAH payment approximately four to six weeks after courses begin, provided their paperwork was completed prior to the start of the semester.
