Chapter 31 students are recommended to opt-out of the Bearkat Bundle program since the VA will not pay for their textbooks. If a Chapter 31 student stays opted-into the program, they will have to pay for the Bearkat Bundle Fee out of pocket.

Chapter 33 students receive $500 voucher each semester for textbooks. They can decide whether they would want to opt-in or out of the Bearkat Bundle.
