Repeating a Class (If repeating for a higher grade)

Approved Course Substitutions
Impact of Withdrawing from One or All Classes
Students who receive VA educational benefits must maintain satisfactory academic progress of 2.0 or higher. If the student withdraws and/or ceases to make satisfactory progress towards completion of their training objective, their educational benefits could be discontinued. When a student withdraws from classes, and if the school has received a tuition payment from the VA, an overpayment (of the VA educational benefits) could also be created, and a debt owed by the school to the VA. Students who fall in this category will receive notification from the VA pertaining to the overpayment. The school will also receive a debt letter from the VA. The school will remove the funds from the student’s account and return them to the VA. The student is responsible for any balance due after the funds are removed.
