Institutional Standards of Progress for Students Receiving Veterans Benefits
The following information applies only to VA-assisted students and is not applicable to other students. In order for the Veteran Student Services Office to submit a student’s certification to receive VA educational benefits, the following standards apply:
- VA-assisted students are required to immediately report any withdrawals from school, reduction of credit load, repetition of courses, and/or any changes in major or curriculum. Students who receive a failing grade must notify the Veteran Student Services Office of their last attendance date in the class.
- VA-assisted students are required to follow the university’s Academic Proficiency Standards outlined in the Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards.
- If a VA-assisted student is terminated, that student may certify for VA benefits only after he or she meets the minimum GPA standards as outlined in NMU’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards.
- These standards are subject to change through legislative or administrative action of the federal government, and such changes shall supersede this section.
In addition, VA-assisted students must also meet the minimum academic standards as set forth by Northern Michigan University in order to continue their enrollment.
