Excused absences will be granted for extenuating
circumstances only. Excused absences must be
substantiated by entries in students’ files. Early departures,
class cuts, tardiness, etc., for any portion of the class period
will be counted as a complete absence. Students exceeding
eight hours of unexcused absences in a 32-hour block
time period will be terminated from their VA benefits for
unsatisfactory attendance. The student’s attendance record
will be retained in their veteran’s file for USDVA and SAA
In order to be eligible for benefits, veterans must maintain
the same academic and conduct standards expected of
all UNF students. VA students receiving VA educational
benefits must maintain a minimum cumulative grade
point average (CGPA) of 2.0 each evaluation period (course
module, term, quarter, semester, etc.). A VA student whose
CGPA falls below 2.0 at the end of any evaluation period will
be placed on academic probation for a maximum of two
consecutive terms of enrollment. If the VA student’s CGPA
is still below 2.0 at the end of the second consecutive term
of probation, the student’s VA educational benefits will be
terminated. A VA student terminated from VA educational
benefits due to unsatisfactory progress may petition the
school to be recertified after attaining a CGPA of 2.0.
Veterans or eligible persons who fail to enter a course,
withdraw, or discontinue the course prior to completion
may be eligible for a refund, less a 10% administrative fee,
of the unused portion of tuition, fees, and other charges.
Students who are called to active duty and are unable to
complete the course may request a withdrawal from the
registered course(s) due to military service. A copy of the
orders is required to receive a full refund.
Students must report all education and training. The
school must evaluate and grant credit, if appropriate,
with the training time shortened, the tuition reduced
proportionately, and the VA and student notified.
