Important Notice – Fall 2020 – Impact on Post 9/11 (CH 33) Monthly Housing Allowance

Due to COVID-19, the Veterans Administration (VA) recognizes that majority of the courses offered for the Fall 2020 semester that are residential, hybrid and/or in person courses will be conducted remotely via ZOOM or CANVAS.

  • For the Post-9/11(CH 33) students that would like to receive the residential monthly allowance housing amount, you will need to be enrolled in one or more residential or hybrid course(s). A course that has an E in front of the section number does not qualify and is considered an online course.
  • A way to make sure the course is a residential course is to look at the section number of the course. If the section number begins with an E, it is an NOVA Online course which is considered a distance learning (online) course.
    • ENG 111 001N – The course is considered a residential/hybrid course.
    • ENG 111 E06W – The course is considered an online course.
