The student must notify the school certifying official in the Admission/Registrar’s Office, if he/she resigns or changes the number of hours being taken so that additional overpayments of benefits can be minimized. If the student resigns because of mitigating circumstances, the VA must be notified in order to prevent termination of benefits retroactive to the beginning of the semester.

Students must maintain satisfactory progress in order to be certified for VA benefits. Students should review the Academic Policies section concerning probation and suspension for more information.

Benefits may be paid for approved diploma programs, approved certificate programs, or approved associate programs. Technical Competency Areas (TCA) are not approved for veterans’ benefits. Students may earn a TCA while enrolled in an approved complementary program.

Students should see the school certifying official in the Admissions/Registrar’s Office to complete paperwork for monthly VA benefits such as the GI Bill, disability benefits, or dependent VA educational benefits. Other veteran related benefits such as the National Guard Tuition Exemption, Reserve or Active Duty Tuition Assistance, VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Training, or veteran dependent tuition fee waivers will be processed through the Scholarship Coordinator located in the Financial Aid Office.
