125 - Veterans' Responsibility: Training Credits

The purpose of this policy is to explain the support services available to those who seek veteran’s educational benefits.

The college provides the necessary support services to veterans, National Guard members and reservists who seek veteran’s educational benefits. Persons requesting these educational benefits must meet with the college's veterans certifying official and submit a completed copy of the Certification of Eligibility. A Veteran's certifying official is located in the financial aid office on each campus.

The requirements attendant to Withdrawal Penalties, Benefit Reductions and Satisfactory Progress Requirements are outlined in the Procedures and Guidelines below.

Veterans' Responsibility: Training Credits Procedures and Guidelines

To request Veteran's Educational Benefits:

Student brings the Certification of Eligibility to a Veteran's representative on campus.

If the student has attended another institution, the college will require an academic transcript from each college attended.

The college will verify with the Veterans Affairs Office the number of credits the student takes each semester.

It is the student's responsibility to inform the Veterans Affairs Office or the Veteran’s representative at the school if they withdraw from any courses during the semester.

Benefit Reduction

The College may grant credit for military and other training/education that is relevant to the Southeast program curriculum. However, the subsequent reduction in credit hours may result in a reduction in the amount of the monthly check.

Satisfactory Progress Requirements

In order to remain eligible for veteran's educational benefits, veterans are subject to College Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.

Withdrawal Penalty

With some exceptions, a veteran who withdraws from the college during any given term will be required to repay benefits received from the Veterans Administration for the days in which the veteran was officially enrolled in that term. Veterans should clarify with the college veteran's representative their status regarding withdrawal.
