    Has anybody had a school VA official incorrectly certify you at a higher/lower rate and you found out after the semester was over (i.e. you got a higher/lower monthly BAH payment than you should have received)? If so, who does the VA hold accountable?

    Please elaborate a bit more on the situation.

    How many credits were you taking? How long was the term?
    It would be beneficial to know what your institution considers "full time" as well.

    Edit:

    I realized that I did not come close to answering your question. My apologies.

    From my experience (overpayments), you are responsible for returning the money to the VA.
    With underpayments I have no experience. I would assume that the VA would not retro-pay you, but would also not go back to reduce your months of remaining benefits.

    If should contact VA regarding your incorrect housing allowance. I graduated from Georgetown University about 2 years ago. But now, I received a bill from the VA stated they over paid tuition to Georgetown University. And expect me to for it, even though I did not see the money. They said that when I attended the institution, I am responsible for the payment to the school and VA. So, in your case...the VA is where you file complaint.
