Certification of Benefits

  1. Veterans are certified only for those classes that are required for their degree program. It is your responsibility to take at least 12 hours of degree required courses to qualify for full-time benefits. You should make sure that all courses are required in your program. Audited courses do not count as part of your course load in qualifying for benefits. Courses that have a passing grade cannot be certified if the class is repeated. Courses not required for your program cannot be certified.
  2. If you change from full-time to part-time status you must file this change with the School Certifying Official.
  3. Veteran Education Benefits are certified on a semester basis. Break pay, i.e., Christmas break, is no longer paid.
