Academic Progress (Probation/Dismissal)
The Veteran's Administration requires that all recipients of veteran education benefits maintain progress toward their stated academic degree. Therefore, all veterans and persons receiving benefits must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 to remain eligible for VA benefits. A veteran who allows her/his GPA to fall below 2.0 will be placed on probation. A veteran will be allowed two semesters to bring their cumulative GPA up to 2.0. If the veteran fails to do so, the VA will be notified of unsatisfactory progress. Enrollment will not be certified to the VA. Certifications may resume once the cumulative GPA has reached 2.0.
It is suggested that VA students discuss any changes they plan on making to their schedules with their Delta VA rep prior to making those changes. This can prevent errors that may negatively affect benefits.
Audit Grade Option -- The VA will not pay for courses that you receive audit (X) grades. The VA may ask you for repayment for these courses.
Dropping a Course -- If you drop a course or stop attending, notify the Delta Veteran Services Office as soon as possible. You may be asked by the VA for repayment if an overpayment situation occurs.
Pass/No Credit Grade Option -- The VA will not pay for courses in which you receive a pass (P) or no credit (NC) grade (non-punitive grades). The VA will ask for repayment for these courses. Consult with your VA representative prior to taking a Pass/No Credit on a course.
Program Evaluation -- The VA will only pay for courses that are required for your declared degree program. Courses that you register for, but are not on your Program Evaluation on MyDelta, will require approval in writing from your academic advisor/counselor that the course(s) will be applicable to your degree program.
Repeating a Course -- Courses that are failed or for which the grade does not meet minimum requirements for graduation may be certified for VA purposes if they are repeated. Courses that are successfully completed may not be certified for VA purposes if they are repeated.
Schedule Changes -- Report all class schedule changes (adds or section changes, and drops with last date of attendance), to the Delta Veteran Services Office.
Verifying Enrollment -- Chapter 30, 1606, and 1607 students must verify with the VA, either by phone, 1-877-823-2378, or on the web, https://www.gibill.va.gov/wave/index.do (WAVE), that you are still attending class. The earliest this can be done is the last calendar day of the each month that you have been in attendance (it doesn't matter if it's a Sunday or holiday). Chapters 33, 35 and 31 do not have to verify at the end of each month.
