2016 - 2019 Academic Catalog Addendum
Please read this important information concerning the 2016-2019 Academic Catalog.
Veteran’s Attendance Policy
Early departures, class cuts, tardies, etc for any portion of a class period will be counted a 1 absence.
Students are allowed a maximum of 3 absences a semester which would be a 7.5% a semester. Per calendar month any student exceeding a 1.87% of total absences will be terminated from their VA benefits for unsatisfactory attendance.
In order to show that the cause of unsatisfactory attendance has been removed, students must show good attendance for one calendar month after being terminated for unsatisfactory attendance. After such a time, the student may be re-certified for VA education benefits.
The student’s attendance record will be retained in the veteran’s file for USDVA and SAA audit purposes.
Standards of Academic Progress for VA Students
Students receiving VA educational benefits must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.0 each semester will be placed on academic probation for a maximum of two consecutive terms of enrollment. If the VA student’s CGPA is still below a 2.0 at the end of the second consecutive term of probation, the students’s VA educational benefits will be terminated.
A VA student terminated from VA educational benefits due to unsatisfactory progress may petition the school to be re-certified after attaining a CGPA of 2.0
Veteran’s Credit for Previous Education Training
Students must report all education and training. The school must evaluate and grant credit, if appropriate, with the training time shortened, the tuition reduced proportionately, and the VA and student notified.
