Follow policies to receive your VA benefits
Follow the regulations below to maintain your eligibility for VA benefits.
Make academic progress toward graduation (View Catalog). If you receive federal financial aid, meet satisfactory academic progress standards for financial aid recipients.
ACC degree plan
You are allowed to take only courses required under the selected ACC degree plan, approved electives, and prerequisite courses. If you intend to transfer, meet to your ACC VA specialist to select the ACC degree plan and courses that meet your transfer goals.
Adds, drops, withdrawal
Notify the ACC VA Office immediately if you add, drop, or withdraw from any classes. You may be required to pay back portions of their benefits if they drop a course, withdraw, or receive a non punitive grade. It is the student’s responsibility to verify information certified to the VA and repay any overpayment.
Change of major/program
If you decide to change your major, submit a new degree plan in order to receive future VA educational benefits.
Developmental course restrictions
If you enroll in development reading, writing, or mathematics classes, they are eligible for VA educational benefits ONLY if required to meet Texas Success Initiative requirements.
If you will miss classes for short term-military leave or military training exercises, contact your instructors as soon as you become aware of this so that appropriate accommodations can be made.
Repeats or duplication
If you fail a course or receive a grade below degree requirements, you may repeat the same course and receive VA educational benefits. All other duplications can NOT be certified.
