Veterans and Military Policy

The Department of Veterans Affairs requires all veterans to abide by the policies and regulations of the College concerning academic standing and progress, class attendance, and conduct. The TCC Veterans Services Office will monitor compliance with these policies and is required to report any deviations to the DVA. All school policies are stated elsewhere in this website. Concurrent with school policies, the DVA requires the following:

Academic Program

A recipient of DVA benefits must select and designate the academic program under which he or she will be receiving educational benefits. Any change of academic program must be acceptable to the DVA.

Course Work

Educational benefits will be paid only on courses applicable toward the academic program. Course substitutions, i.e., course outside the catalog listing for a particular program, must be verified as an approved substitution. The DVA will not award educational benefits for repeated courses in which a passing grade has already been received or for courses in which an incomplete “I ” is earned.

Previous or Transfer Credit

Applicants for benefits having earned college credit at another institution must submit transcripts from each institution he or she has attended before the TCC Veterans Services Office can certify enrollment to the DVA.

Class Attendance

The DVA requires the institution to report all excessive absences from classes. Failure to attend classes while receiving benefits will result in an overpayment and the student is liable for repayment to the DVA.
