STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES
Navarro College is authorized by the Department of Veterans Affairs to certify students enrolled in our degree programs for benefits under Chapter 30 (Montgomery G.I. Bill – Active Duty), Chapter 1606 (Montgomery G.I. Bill – Selected Reserve), Chapter 1607 (Reserve Educational Assistance Program), Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Service), Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 G.I. Bill – Active Duty), and Chapter 35 (Dependents’ Educational Assistance). Eligibility and chapter is determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Veterans Affairs Office offers assistance to veterans and their dependents. This office helps student obtain complete admission and enrollment requirements to qualify for various benefits.
Each veteran student must follow courses on his/her degree plan. In order to be considered a full-time VA student, the student must meet all enrollment requirements. Full-time status is determined based on the equivalent of 12 credits taken consistently over a long-term semester.
Veteran students who are using Federal Education Benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs must request for their courses to be certified by submitting the online Request for Certification.
Veteran students can only be certified for courses that are on his/her degree plan unless he/she is in the last semester before graduation (i.e., all required courses have been fulfilled on the active degree plan). In the event that a veteran student is in the last semester before graduation, he/she is authorized to take courses outside of the active degree plan in order to reach fulltime status.
Veteran students can only be certified for repeat courses if the course was failed with an “F” grade, unless he/she is in the last semester before graduation. In the event that a veteran student is in the last semester before graduation, he/she may be authorized to repeat courses that have met graduation requirements.
For information pertaining to class attendance and the effects of nonattendance on Veterans Affairs benefits, veteran students should see the section entitled Attendance of Student with Veterans Benefits (Student – Attendance – Attendance of Student with Veterans Benefits).
