Veteran Education Benefits may be authorized for veterans and qualified dependents under specific chapters of Title 38, U.S. Code (USC). Each VA Education Program has distinct eligibility requirements. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs determines eligibility for VA Education Benefits. The Veterans Coordinator at South Florida Bible College & Theological Seminary cannot determine eligibility. Recipient can only receive one VA Federal Benefit at a time even if they are eligible for more than one VA Federal Benefit. Students who wish to apply for VA Federal Benefits can do so online at http://www.va.gov. If you have specific questions on any of the chapters or eligibility requirements, please contact the Department of Veterans Affairs at 1-888-442-4551.
Students must pre-register for classes before the VA Coordinator can submit application and certify enrollment to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Repeating a Course The VA will not pay you to repeat a course(s) for which you have received a passing grade (D or higher), whether the course was taken at Texas A&M International University or at another college or university. They will pay you to repeat a course under the following two conditions:
*You received a grade of “F” in the course. The VA will pay for you to repeat that course if it is required for graduation.
* You received a grade of “D” in the course and your Texas A&M International University degree program requires at least a grade of “C”. It is your responsibility to notify your VA Coordinator if you are repeating a course under the above circumstances. If proper notification is not provided, an overpayment may occur and YOU will be held liable for repayment.
ALLOWING VETERANS TO ATTEND OR PARTICIPATE IN COURSES PENDING VA PAYMENT
Section 103 of Public Law (PL) 115-407, ‘Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018,’ amends Title 38 US Code 3679 by adding a new subsection (e) that requires disapproval of courses of education, beginning August 1, 2019, at any educational institution that does not have a policy in place that will allow an individual to attend or participate in a course of education, pending VA payment, providing the individual submits a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under Chapter 31 or 33.
Pending Payment Compliance
