We provide education and training opportunities to help veterans transition from military duty to civilian careers.

Military & Veterans Education POLICIES


Veteran’s Attendance Policy

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 audit purposes.

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.

Veteran’s Refund Policy

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.

Veteran’s Credit for Previous Education or Training

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.
