Chapter 30 & Chapter 1606 Information
Verification of Attendance, Change in Enrollment or Failing Grade
Veterans and dependents receiving educational benefits must verify monthly enrollment. Any change in enrollment or attendance during the semester must be immediately verified by going to W.A.V.E. (Web Automated Verification of Enrollment). Failure to do so could result in an overpayment, which the VA will require the student to repay. VA regulations state that any reduction in rate due to withdrawal from a class is effective retroactive to the beginning of the semester unless mitigating circumstances are documented. Mitigating circumstances are those which are normally, but not necessarily, beyond the student’s control.
Students receiving VA benefits who receive a failing grade must notify the VA Office of the last date of class attendance. Failure to provide the last date of attendance will result in the VA being notified that the last date of attendance was the first day of the semester.
