CONTINUING/RETURNING STUDENT ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
To qualify for Continuing/Returning student status, the following criteria must be met:
- A student must be enrolled and complete (with a passing grade) a Level 1 class in a multilevel Program Pathway
- Enroll in Level 2 of the Program Pathway
- Remain at the same school site (Students who wish to change their school site will no longer be eligible for Continuing/Returning student status)
Students who are not continuing into the next level of their current class will no longer qualify for returning/continuing student eligibility.
Students who are eligible for returning student enrollment will be notified by the Veteran Education Program clerk prior to enrollment. Students who do not have prior approval for enrollment will not be enrolled.
**School sites will not enroll students during returning/continuing student enrollment period without written approval notice.
Students who are attending classes that are only 1 (one) semester in length and/or those who will be completing the final level of their courses at the end of the semester will be considered NEW STUDENTS for the next semester and will enroll during Open Enrollment.
If you have completed the total allowed semester(s) in each course, do not re-enroll in the same course, VA does not pay for repeat courses or give extensions.
(Although Course names, instructors, and times may change in an individual course, course curriculum remains the same. Therefore, repeating the course is not allowed)
Step 1: Registration for classes
Students who are eligible for Returning Student Enrollment will be notified by Veteran Education Program Clerk of returning student approval and enrollment dates. Returning Student Approval Form and Picture ID is required for enrollment. Students who do not have the Approval form at the time of enrollment will not be enrolled for classes.
Per Veteran Administration, (Title 38 U.S.C. 3680A(d) and 38 CFR 21.4201), each individual program must meet VA regulations in respect to class counts. Therefore, to remain in compliance with this policy, each program will have a maximum cap of up to 85:15 ratio for Veteran student enrollment
