- Please note: MyCAA does not cover any fees. (Ex. Technology Fee, Class Fee, Books etc…)
- The GI Bill® (all chapters including Ch. 30, 1607, 1606, 33 and 35), most outside scholarships and MyCAA funding are not stackable and therefore may need to be adjusted based on the students eligibility. If a student is planning on using MyCAA funding, GI Bill and outside scholarships within the same semester please email firstname.lastname@example.org to verify if these types of aid can be combined.
GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.

STEP 8: Review Important Information & FAQ about MyCAA
Things to remember when requesting MyCAA funding:
- When you request MyCAA funding, you will need to know the start/end dates of the term(s) you are applying for.
- If you are taking an intensive you will need to put the start/end dates for the entire semester. (Example: You are taking a Spring 2015 intensive. You will need to put 1/12/2015 - 5/8/2015).
- If you are taking LU Online courses that are 8 weeks long you must request the funding for each specific 8 week term. (Example: You are enrolled in one B subterm course and one D subterm course. You will need to request two different Financial Assistance forms, one with the B subterm dates and the other with D subterm dates). Any FA forms received with courses that do not match the dates and/or terms will not be accepted.
