A student may take courses that apply to his or her degree at more than one school. The school that will grant the degree is the student's "parent" school and all other schools are "secondary". The VA can pay benefits for courses taken at secondary schools based on these examples:
The Parent School Letter gives the receiving school assurance that the class, if successfully completed, will apply appropriately to the student's academic program.
It is against VA rules to issue a parent school letter to a student pursuing a different degree at a secondary institution. Students pursuing a degree at secondary institution while pursuing a degree with CWU will become ineligible for a parent school letter.
