Standards of Academic Progress

Under federal regulations, students receiving VA educational benefits must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.00 each term. A VA student, whose cumulative GPA falls below a 2.00 at the end of any term or do not meet the 50% completion of coursework will be placed on academic probation for a maximum of two consecutive terms of enrollment. If the VA student’s cumulative GPA is still below a 2.00 or coursework completion is below 50% of the end of the second consecutive term of probation, the student’s VA educational benefits will be terminated. If there are mitigating circumstances for not meeting the standards of academic progress, veterans can submit a written appeal to the Military & Veterans Services office requesting continuance of VA education benefits. A VA student terminated from VA educational benefits due to unsatisfactory progress may apply for reinstatement of VA educational benefits after one term has elapsed and after attaining a CGPA of 2.0. VA students in these situations should contact the campus Military & Veterans Service Center immediately for assistance in applying for reinstatement of their VA educational benefits.
