Veteran Student Services
Embry-Riddle degree programs are approved by the appropriate State Department of Veterans Affairs (State Approving Agency) for enrollment of persons eligible to receive education benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Students must be pursuing a degree in a specific program to be eligible to receive benefits. Admission procedures for veterans and other eligible persons are the same as those for other students. Students who do not satisfy all requirements for full admission may be certified for two terms; however, they may be required to repay the VA for some or all benefits received if they do not achieve full admission status during that time.
Title 38, United States Code, sections 3474 and 3524, requires that education assistance to veterans and other eligible persons be discontinued when the student ceases to make satisfactory progress toward completion of the training objective. Accordingly, benefits will be interrupted for undergraduate students whose CGPA is less than 2.00 for three consecutive terms or who are otherwise subject to suspension and for graduate students who are subject to dismissal. The VA will be appropriately notified of the unsatisfactory progress. The student must submit a written request to reinstate education benefits. The request must include proof of academic counseling and the conditions for continued enrollment or re-entrance. The VA will determine eligibility for reinstatement of benefits, based in part on the school’s recommendation.
Veterans’ progress will be measured according to University standards as published in this catalog, and the rules and regulations of the VA apply. The criteria used to evaluate progress are subject to change. Application and interpretation of the criteria are solely at the discretion of Embry-Riddle.
Students are responsible for notifying the School Certifying Official of any change in their enrollment or change in personal information affecting their eligibility. Students also must remain in compliance with University and Department of Veterans Affairs requirements.
Students may receive education benefits only for courses that are required for their designated degree program. Students who receive VA benefits are subject to strict academic regulations and should be aware of how auditing courses, repeating a course, changing degree programs or enrollment status, and other actions may affect their eligibility to receive benefits.
