Bellevue University Tops U.S. News Rankings

Tuition Assistance Top Up (TATU)

On October 30, 2000, the President signed into law an amendment to the Montgomery GI Bill. This amendment is called Top Up. It allows an active duty student to use both their TA benefits and VA benefits for the same courses. This Top Up amount is the difference of what the DOD pays for Tuition Assistance and the tuition rate charged by Bellevue University. The amount of the VA funds used in the Top Up program will be deducted from the student's total MGIB eligibility. The Post 911 GI Bill also allows for Top Up benefits.


Please contact if you are eligible for Post 9/11 education benefits AND would like to use your Top-Up Benefits.

Students using any other Veteran Education Benefit will continue to submit their TA document(s) to the Department of Veterans Affairs to receive their Top-Up benefits.

MGIB (Chapter 30) Top Up is handled directly with the VA regional office and NOT through Bellevue University. Please contact your Base Education Center for more details. To contact the VA directly, call the VA Regional Office for Nebraska (888) 442-4551. Information is also available on their website

Please fax your authorized TA document to 314-552-9444 or mail to:
Department of Veteran Affairs
PO BOX 66830
St. Louis, MO 63166
