The Government Shutdown has ended.
The phones are now being answered at Veterans Affairs if you have any questions. Contact information can be found at their website www.va.gov. Hopefully, there will be no lapse in payments of VA benefits and you receive it on time. Should you have any financial hardship because of VA payments, please contact the Military and Veteran Student Services Center and you can discuss options available to you at UNI (Short-term interest free loans, holds and fees removed from account, etc).
The government funding is approved until January 15. Hopefully there will be an agreement prior to that and we will not experience this again. We will keep you updated. Please continue to visit this website to get updates.
