Veterans and others who are eligible for education benefits must contact the Coordinator of Military Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Veterans are assisted in obtaining benefits for their selected benefit programs and in providing certification to the Veterans Administration.
Cowley College is approved for Veterans Administration training. Prospective students who are eligible for veterans’ benefits should file the proper forms with the VA to establish their eligibility. Each semester veterans must complete the Request for Certification form found on the Cowley College Web site, http://www.cowley.edu/va/index.html. Veterans who terminate college, withdraw from, or add classes during the semester should make certain that the Coordinator of Military Services is notified immediately. The veteran is responsible for providing the Coordinator of Military Services with complete information regarding current enrollment status. Failure to follow the adopted procedures of the VA or the college may result in the VA seeking financial recoupment from the veteran.
Veteran’s Standard of Progress Policy
The veteran must earn the following cumulative grade point average (GPA), depending upon the student’s total hours attempted:
Veterans who do not earn the required GPA will be placed on probation for the following semester. The veteran must complete a minimum of six (6) credit hours in a subsequent semester with a semester GPA of 2.00 in order to be removed from probation.
Suspension will occur if a probationary veteran does not meet the probation requirements for reinstatement.
A veteran will be reinstated upon the satisfactory completion of at least six (6) credit hours in a subsequent semester from which they were suspended with a semester GPA of 2.00 or better. In addition, there may be additional requirements by the Registrar that must be completed satisfactorily that are intended to help the veteran become a successful student. It is the veteran’s responsibility to reapply for benefits and to notify the certifying official that satisfactory progress has been met. The veteran has the right to appeal according to terms outlined in Cowley College Policy Handbook, policy 432.00.
