Spring 2022 Classes
On December 21, 2021 President Biden signed the REMOTE Act which extends the COVID-19 protections for VA Education Benefit users throuh June 1, 2022. Our office is contacting our partners on campus to identify courses that have had the modality changed to online as a result of COVID-19. Any classes that are identified will be listed below, in real-time as we receive information. It is important to note that courses not identified as being moved online due to COVID-19 must be reported as they appear on the student schedule.
The following information has implications for students who are utilizing Chapter 33 (Post 9/11) and Chapter 31 (VR&E) VA Education Benefits. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, new legislation has allowed a temporary change in what classes can be reported as “In-Resident”.
For full-time, Post 9/11 GI Bill® and Chapter 31 (VR&E) students must be enrolled in at least one credit hour for the full term that is taught “In-Resident” in order to receive their full monthly housing allowance (MHA). The MHA rate is based on the campus that a student is taking the majority of their "In-Resident" credit hours.
