    My DD has a 4 year AROTC scholarship (nursing). She passed her APFT on Sept 02 2017, one week after college started. She signed her contract on Sept 22 2017. She took her oath on Oct 14 2017.

    Her stipend payment(s) have not shown up yet.

    Will she be paid retroactive to the day she signed her contract?

    Is there a specific day of the month stipends are paid?

    Thanks

    It all depends on when the battalion completed all the paperwork. I would imagine that she will see a stipend payment on the next pay period, it's possible they could prorate the payment to the date she signed, or it could be when the paperwork was filed. If there are questions when she receives the first stipend payment, have her talk to the battalion HR person.

    UPDATE: talked to my DD today. Her battalion doesn't have an HR person at this time so the work is being done by other people in the cadre, so things are moving a little slow. She talked to her ROO and he's looking into it through Cadet Command.

    You will only receive stipend for the day of, and after, she took the oath. They stipend will only come once they complete the paperwork and one complete pay cycle has occurred.

    My stipend started as soon as my contract was uploaded to CCIMMS. and I was backpayed to the beginning of the semester. I didn’t even have my CAC yet. I now have my CAC but I still haven’t sworn in. It’s more about when they upload your documents into the system. Then the payments automatically start flowing.

    @JLur - were you paid immediately or did you get paid at the end of the month, after it was uploaded?

    @GreenMountainPatriot Stipend is paid on the first and 15th of every month. Your DD was probably not paid yet just like the rest of the GMB cadets, assuming from your profile picture. She should have been paid by now, as I believe all of the issues have been resolved

    She received an email a while back indicating payment was made, but nothing showed up in her account. Did this occur with other GMB cadets?

    @AJC - prorated stipend only for half the month of October? Nothing for September?

    Stipends start when upon contracting. Back stipends are not paid.
    My son is at an SMC. They had about 80 contracts to do this semester. So they did a few at a time.
    Kind of dragged out the process.

    Maybe, but he was told that would not happen.
    Also I think others on the forum who are staff at AROTC units have said that that does not happen.
    I will keep an eye out and of he gets back stipends I will post.
