NEW BENEFITS FOR UNEMPLOYED VETERANS
*Certifying Officials for Cambridge and Coon Rapids Campus*
Remember, if you are using Military Benefits, your certifying official* is ONE OF THE MOST important person's in your educational career.
You MUST contact this person every semester and every time you make changes to your student schedule.
Once you receive your Award Letter from the VA, please verify your VA enrollment at the Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) or by calling 877-823-2378. Ch 30, 1606, 1607 must verify enrollment monthly in order to receive payment. NOTE: This is NOT required for CH 33 benefits Guidelines for Reservists and National Guardsmen Called to Active Duty
Consistent MnSCU Procedure 5.12.1 a student who is a member of any branch of the U.S. military reserves, who is unable to complete a course or courses due to active duty call-up shall be offered the following course cancellation and/or completion options. In all cases, the student is required to provide the college with a copy of his/her call-up papers.
A student may receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees. A student receiving financial aid who chooses this option is required to repay 100% of grants and loans (not work study) that has been disbursed for the term. An instructor may agree to assign the student an incomplete (an Agreement of Incomplete Form needs to be completed) even though less than 75% of the coursework has been completed. If, in the instructor's judgment, a student has completed sufficient coursework to earn a grade of C or better, the instructor may assign credit (a grade) for completion of a course.
A student who does not find one of the first three options suitable, may withdraw from the course. A withdraw request will be honored even if the withdrawal deadline has passed. Additionally, it's a good idea for financial aid recipients to check in with the Financial Aid Office--specifically anyone who received the Minnesota State Grant. You can reach us at 763-433-1500.
