My son is a 4 yr army scholarship recipient and starts college in August. He has done/passed all the requirements except the final fitness test which I understand he takes when he gets to college. It is also my understanding his scholarship money/payment will not kick in until he has passed the fitness - this hopefully, should not be an issue but I'm just covering all aspects. However, the college requires payment the week before classes start which is before he will do his fitness so I don't know if there will be a delay in scholarship payment. So I guess I am asking if there is a week or two lag with payment is that something the AROTC handles with the college or should I be proactive and find out now in case we need to make a payment before the scholarship tuition money is paid. Then, if we pay it do I get reimbursed from AROTC?
