    While on break DS received his $600 book money for the spring semester. What is strange is that the check ( yes paper check) came to our home and not direct deposited as previously or direct deposited like his stipend.Also this happened to some of the other cadets in his unit but for some others the money was direct deposited. Go figure, we are just happy he has received all of his monies in full and in a timely manner.

    book money

    DS also received a paper check for book$ this semester. Check also included CLIP money, that's why we assumed it wasn't direct deposit. BTW CLIP money had taxes withheld.

    My son hasn't gotten his yet so it will be interesting to see how it comes. We are having our mail forwarded so it will take a while before it comes here.

    Kind of surprised that you received it via snail mail ... figured CC would try to save costs wherever and whenever.

    Sheriff,

    Too lazy to look through the old threads....was it your child that didn't get their scholarship paid until the week before Xmas?

    If so that may be why. It may come down to some silly reg within the system. IE because they had problems processing the scholarship it goes to a default method of paper.

    Not sure I would call it timely, but at least it's in time and the front money for next semesters books is available.

    PIMA, no DS received his scholarship on the second board last Feb. So far ( knock on wood) every tuition payment, stipend and book payment has been in full and on time. We are very thankful to have a very good HR person at his unit. I really believe that makes all the difference in the world.

    Was that his CLIP money for Fall, 2013? DS received his book money for spring which was a pleasant surprise but has no idea when to expect CLIP.

    DS received his fall room and board right before Christmas. Stipends have been directly deposited to his account (on time), as well as his fall book money.

    Spring book money has already been deposited into his account. No paper check for us.:thumb:

    Humphhh, eat my words… Paper check for the stipend came in the mail today. DS will check with Cadre to see what's up. Has anyone else found out a reason for this?

    Stipend still coming as direct deposit, but no one in my Btn has gotten their book money yet. Is it coming to the home of record or to the school (Like the regular LES)?

    DS's came in the mail at home not school mail.

    He asked the HR person if his settings for direct deposit had changed and she said no that it is still direct deposit on his file. She's not sure why this has happened. But it seems like several others had the same thing happen to them.

    Our son was told to expect it yesterday (15th) via direct deposit, but it did not show up. Is it possible that MSIVs receive theirs earlier than MSIs?
