CERTIFICATION POLICY FOR VA EDUCATIONAL BENEFITS
The focus of the VA Program is to serve in a role that enhances the military friendliness of the institution by providing VA Educational Benefits to Veterans and Eligible Dependents while abiding by the federal requirements set forth by the Department of Veteran Affairs. These requirements, and the resulting policy, serve to enhance graduation rates and equip veterans for employment opportunities by providing the credentialing of a college degree. These policies are geared towards optimizing timely Program Completion and the continued progression towards higher educational goals.
