Antioch University New England is approved for Veterans’ Benefits. Those who are eligible may see the Registrar for the appropriate forms to initiate requests for benefits. Veterans’ Administration regulations state that:
“The records (of the school) must be sufficient to show continued pursuit at the rate for which enrolled and the progress being made. They must include final grade (credit) in each subject for each term, quarter, semester; record of withdrawal from any subject to include the last date of attendance for a resident course. The school policy relative to standards of progress must be specific enough to determine the point in time when educational benefits should be discontinued…” (UR & E Trans Sheet 434) In compliance with the above regulations, we require the following:
- Students enrolled for seven or more credits in the fall and spring semesters and five or more credits in the summer semester will be certified as full-time. You may also be certified for three-quarter (5 credits) or half-time (3.5 credits) benefits.
- Eligible students are certified each semester and review of their coursework is done at that time. After you register for the upcoming semester and it is determined whether you are eligible for full-time or part-time benefits (based on the number of credits registered for and satisfactory progress), you will be certified for the subsequent semester.
- Faculty will be notified of veteran students enrolled in their classes and asked to notify the Registrar if they are not attending. If it is found that you are not working toward the number of credits you had registered for, both you and the VA will be notified.
