01 NCAC 26B .0208          TRANSFER BY RECIPIENT

Whenever a recipient desires to transfer to another institution, the division of veterans affairs authorizes the scholarship transfer only after receiving assurance that the recipient is accepted at the other institution.  Educational institutions should not transfer scholarship records of transferring students nor act upon a transfer without prior notification from the division of veterans affairs.  When the transfer is between two state institutions, the division will write the first institution and ask that the recipient's award letter, together with a statement of his remaining eligibility time, be sent to the other institution.  If the transfer is from a state to a private institution, the first institution will be asked to return to the division the award letter and a statement of the recipient's remaining eligibility time.  A new letter of transfer will then be issued by the division to the other institution.  When the transfer is from a private institution, the division will write the first institution asking that the copy of the recipient's award letter, together with a statement of his remaining eligibility time be returned to the division.  The division will then inform the second institution of the scholarship, including the amount payable and the scholarship eligibility time remaining.
