I am in college and am wondering why my check was short between summer and fall term.

Recent changes to the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Improvements Act eliminates break pay between terms. This means that your GI Bill will only pay when school is in session. Monthly benefits will be prorated accordingly, and the remainder of the entitlement previously offered for break pay will be distributed only during a time of future enrollment.
