Current Veteran Students

Each semester you must complete and submit a Request for Certification Form to the Office of Veteran Services. The green link below will take you to the Certification Forms Page. Please ensure that all courses you select are required for your current degree program.  Courses that are not in your degree program will not be certified, nor will they be paid for by VA. Link to Main Webpage.                                                       

General Guidelines to Consider When Selecting Courses
  • Courses must be required for the degree you are currently pursuing.
  • VA will only pay for the level of remedial classes you test into, as determined by the results of your PERT test.
  • ALL remedial courses must be in a classroom.  If any portion of the remedial course, to include the lab, is online the course CANNOT be certified.
  • Choose your electives wisely, as once you have reached your elective limit (specific to your degree program), as defined in the SCF catalog, VA will not pay for additional electives, even if they may be requirements for entrance into a degree program you wish to transfer into.  This also applies to Gordon Rule requirements for the AA degree.

  Last Semester Rule 

If you are completing the last semester requirements for your degree VA will allow you to invoke the "Last Semester Rule." Under this rule you can round out your schedule in order to attain full time status and receive your full VA educational benefit for the semester.  

When you invoke this rule VA (in most cases) does not impose any restrictions on the courses you can take.  Additionally, the courses do not have to apply toward your degree; you should, however,  utilize this opportunity to take any additional requirements that may be required for transfer purposes. 

This rule can only be used once per program. In order to use the Last Semester Rule you must complete the Last Semester Rule form, and it must be submitted along with your Request For Certification.  Click here to open the form
