Satisfactory Progress / Probation

Students receiving VA benefits need to understand their college’s policy regarding satisfactory progress and academic probation (found in the college catalog). A VA student placed on probation has a maximum of two consecutive semesters to return to good standing. Failure to return to good standing within two semesters will make the student ineligible for VA educational benefits.

The student may regain their eligibility for VA benefits for future terms under one of two conditions: (1) a return to good standing in the college, or (2) a request for resumption of VA educational benefits is submitted to the Department of Veterans Affairs claiming mitigating circumstances and Veterans Affairs reinstates benefits based on evidence supporting the student’s claim.
