Only one class schedule can be submitted for certification. Any additional adjustments increasing enrollment will not be processed until after the first refund period. Any adjustments decreasing enrollment may reduce my monthly educational benefits. Failure to submit a final schedule or report schedule changes can impact my certification and receipt of educational benefits.
Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) will not pay for courses I do not attend, courses I withdraw from, and courses I complete but receive a grade that will not count towards graduation.
