Change in Enrollment and Student Responsibilities
All changes made after your initial certification should be brought to the attention of the VA Certifying Official so the change can be reported. 最常见的变化包括:
- Changes in credit hours (dropping or adding)
- Changes in courses/enrollment/schedule
- Change in previously reported or incomplete grade
Failure to report changes may result in termination of 好处, 未来认证的延迟, delays in receiving benefit payments and debt/overpayment with the VA. Changes may be reported to the VA School Certifying Official in person, by telephone, or email. Audits are conducted and changes in units will be reported, but it is ultimately your responsibility to report these changes when they occur to reduce the possibility of an overpayment or possibly an underpayment.
Caution: “W’s”: The VA will not pay for educational 好处 for courses from which you have withdrawn, unless the VA determines that there are mitigating circumstances.
