REQUIREMENTS TO MAINTAIN YOUR VA EDUCATIONAL BENEFITS
It is important to stay in good academic standing while in college.
You are required to attend all of your classes. Instructors may drop any student who is excessively absent when the hours absent equal the number of classes per week, regardless of the reason. For example, if you have a class that meets three times a week and are absent from class for more than three hours, your instructor might drop you.
If you know you will be absent from class, we recommend contacting your instructor to let them know so they are aware you are out and can let you know their policies.
You must maintain the following requirement to receive your VA Educational Benefits, you will not be certified or will be placed on academic probation if any one of the following conditions occurs:
If you feel you are close to getting a GPA below a 2.0
- Grade Point Average cannot fall below 2.0, or your GPA in any semester is below 2.0.
- Transfers from another college with an overall GPA under 2.0.
- The total number of W units (dropped courses) exceeds the number of units completed.
- If you fail to maintain a C average (2.0) for the semester, you will be subject to disqualification.
- If you are receiving subsistence (funds to assist with paying for college and living expenses), note that the Veterans Administration demands Satisfactory Academic Progress (find out more below) in order to continue receiving financial payments without any interruptions. Ask your counselor if you have any questions.
