Students receiving GI Bill benefits are subject to the following general policies:

  • If you have earned a college degree or have completed close to 50 units, you will be limited as to what courses will be allowed for certification.
  • You may not claim benefits for courses that have been previously completed successfully. A repeated course would result in an overpayment that would have to be repaid; regardless of when or where you completed it the first time. A course is considered completed if it is graded with a letter grade of A, B, C, P or CR.
  • You may not claim benefits for a course in which you have received two substandard grades.
  • You may be eligible to claim benefits for classes taken through open-circuit television or online without concurrent enrollment in an on-campus class. Training time will be based upon the number of credits hours/units.
    • Note: Veterans using chapter 33 benefits must take a minimum of one (1) on-campus non-hybrid course each term.
  • If you receive an incomplete grade, you will not be permitted to re-enroll in the same course in a subsequent term. You have up to one year in which to "complete" the course with the instructor and receive a letter grade.
  • Should you receive a No-Pass (NP) grade for a course, you may incur an overpayment that will have to be repaid. Units from Pass/No-Pass courses will apply toward graduation, but will not be included in the grade point average (GPA).
