Where does my Post-9/11 GI Bill money go for books, supplies, tuition, and fees?
A direct deposit by the DVA will be made in your personal bank account for your book and supply stipend - the amount varies depending on the course load you are carrying until you hit the annual maximum benefit of $1000. The DVA pays the school directly for tuition and fees. If you have paid for some of the fees the DVA will pay for, or if you are receiving any fee waivers, you will be sent a refund check from the school.

The DVA will not pay for any extraneous fees: fees for things like parking, student activity cards, and for course tuition fees for non-approved courses. Those fees are your responsibility.
