Reduced Deposit for Post 9/11 GI Bill
Students receiving the Post 9/11 GI Bill can pay a reduced deposit when accepting their letter of offer for admissions to Griffith University.

Paying this amount will allow you to receive your Confirmation of Enrolment needed to obtain your student visa.
To be approved for a reduced deposit you will need to supply a copy of your "Certificate of Eligibility" to the VA Certifying Official for Griffith University, Mr Michael Holder. Please send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org Once the certificate is checked, the International Admissions Office will be sent an email advising them of your eligibility to pay a reduced deposit to accept your place at Griffith University. You will be copied into this email for your records of the approved reduced deposit.
