Bellevue College's academic programs of study are approved by the Higher Education Coordinating Board's State Approving Agency (HECB/SAA) for enrollment of persons eligible to receive educational benefits under Title 38 and Title 10, U.S. Code.
Eligible veterans, reservists, or dependents of veterans who plan to apply for benefits must contact the Veterans' Affairs Coordinator in the Financial Aid Office as early as possible. Certification of VA benefits will occur upon acceptance to a VA-approved degree program and when all pertinent documents are on file. The eligible student can be certified only for courses applicable to the declared degree program. Students are expected to be enrolled in college-level courses, although some developmental courses ("deficiency courses" in VA terminology) are permitted. Students requiring deficiency courses will be reviewed by the veterans' affairs coordinator.
All VA benefit recipients are required to enroll in at least 6 credits per quarter to receive a monthly check. VA will pay for tuition and fees for 5 credits or less. Telecourses and online courses are approved without having to take a resident course. Students must maintain academic progress by successfully completing their courses with a 2.00 GPA. Students who fail to maintain the minimum requirement may be placed on probation when extenuating circumstances occur. It is advisable to consult with the veterans' affairs coordinator when students suspect they may fail to maintain academic progress.
Students should inform the veterans' affairs coordinator as soon as possible about any change that may affect the their VA status, such as change in the program of study, credit load, dependent status, or address.
