You must attend class and submit assigned work in order to receive GI Bill and Chapter 35 benefits, according to VA regulations. If you receive an "F" in a class for not attending or not submitting assignments, you may have to repay your veterans education benefits. The USDVA also requires NOVA to report "N" grades that do not count toward your grade point average (GPA) or criteria for graduation requirements. If you receive an "N" in a class, you will be charged with an overpayment.
Not attending a class or reporting a registration change could also affect other financial aid that you receive. Before you cancel a class, speak with a Veteran Advisor to understand the consequences of lowering your credit load. You may cancel or add a course utilizing the Veterans Enrollment Adjustment Form.
You must report your registration changes to the Veteran Advisors Office to make sure that the VA is informed of your change in credit load and you are informed of how it might affect your benefits status.
If you are facing challenges in your classes or you have any questions about the cancel/add process, please contact the Office of Military Services or campus Veteran Advisor as early as possible to learn about academic and tutoring resources that are available to you at NOVA and/or through the Department of Veteran Affairs.
