Students receiving VA benefits who withdraw from a class may have to repay the money received for the class unless the withdrawal was due to circumstances beyond the student's control. Please contact our offfice if you have extenuating circumstances.
If students have previously drawn educational benefits, a "Request for a Change of Place and/or Program" (form 22-1995) must be filed.

Benefits can be suspended if credits granted for previous training are not reported to the Veterans Administration.
Satisfactory progress for veterans
Students receiving VA benefits need to understand the college's policy regarding academic probation. They must maintain a GPA equal to or better than a 2.0 cumulative grade point average ("C" average). A 2.0 GPA is required to meet graduation requirements. If the GPA falls below 2.0, students will be placed on probation with VA. Failure to raise the cumulative GPA to 2.0 within three consecutive semesters will result in termination of VA educational benefits. The college will inform the Department of Veterans Affairs and the student in writing of this fact. The student can be re-certified in the future under one of two conditions: (1) the cumulative GPA is raised to 2.0 or (2) a request for resumption of educational benefits is submitted to the VA and the VA reinstates benefits based on evidence supporting the student's claim.
