Note: Veterans or individuals using VA funding, also see our School Policies. Where policies vary, VA policies will take precedent.

VA Benefits students will only be certified for one – traditional course based off the school assessment of needs and training. And the advanced course should the student decide to pursue the program.

Standards of Progress for VA Students

Evaluation of progress of VA students will be conducted by the school’s evaluation policy schedule. Students with a minimum of 70% academic average and 70% attendance will be considered making satisfactory progress until the next scheduled evaluation.

In order for a student to be considered making satisfactory progress the student must meet both attendance and academic minimum requirements. Students receiving VA benefits who fail to meet minimum progress and attendance requirements will be placed on probation for 30 days. At the end of the probationary period, the student’s progress (academic and attendance) will be re-evaluated. If the student is meeting minimum requirements, the student will be determined to be making satisfactory progress and will be considered off of Probation.


Interruptions for Unsatisfactory Attendance

If the student fails to meet minimum requirements in either academics or attendance, the student will be determined to not be making satisfactory progress and the school’s certifying official will submit a 22-1999b; effective on the last day of probation.
