Veterans Receive Time Deferment On Bill Payment

Only Students with Delayed Subsistence Allotment May Arrange for Postponement


For the benefit of the veteran who, because of delayed subsistence checks, faces extreme financial hardship, a change in University policy delegates authority to the Bursar to extend the date of payment for room and board bills, the Provost's office announced Wednesday.

Emphasizing the fact that there are few students who fall into the needy category, as interpreted by the Bursar, the administrative spokesman stated that only the veterans who have absolutely no other means than checks yet to be received are concerned. They will be allowed to defer payment of the current bill to the first of the month of the issuance of the next bill, February 1.

Loan Funds May Be Used

If it is still impossible for the veteran to pay before the next bill is delivered, the problem will be transferred from the Bursar's office to the Dean's office, where already overtaxed loan and aid funds will be brought to bear.

Most of the men affected by the late subsistence check arrivals are from the 458 who attended the College in the spring but were on leave of absence during the summer. While meetings earlier in the term have served to step up the efficiency in getting new veteran students on the Government payroll, the returnee applications seem to have been side-tracked temporarily at VA headquarters in Boston.

In order to give the VA a complete picture concerning those veterans who have been overlooked, the Counsellor for Veterans has invited the returnees to state their case at Weld 15 Thursday and Friday.
