STUDENT WITH VETERANS BENEFITS
ATTENDANCE OF STUDENT WITH VETERANS BENEFITS
All students receiving Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits must notify the Veterans Certifying Official of any enrollment changes as soon as they are made. The Veterans Affairs benefit recipient needs to be aware that the VA may require repayment of all benefits received since the beginning of a semester for any course in which a “W” grade is received.
Excused absences for an individual called to active military service should take into consideration retention of coursework completed during the portion of the course prior to the student being called to active military service and within a reasonable time after the absence for the completion of the assignments and examinations. Reasonable time is defined by the Texas Administrative Code as no more than 25% of the total contact hour timeframe (excluding the final examination period) for the excused absence for active military service.
Veterans or veterans’ dependents should see the section entitled Veterans Services (Student – Student Welfare – Student Support Services – Veterans Services) for more information on Veterans Affairs benefits.
Any student who wishes to dispute a decision concerning his/her absence should follow the Student/Instructor Conflict Resolution procedures in a timely fashion and as described in the current Navarro College Student Handbook.
