Note: The VA training times indicated above are for the individual enrollment periods only. Each sub-term must be considered individually and cannot be combined with other enrollment periods for the assignment of a training time. These training times are designed for Veteran Affairs benefits only, and should not be used to calculate course loads for financial aid or outside scholarships. For all other purposes (i.e., confirmation of enrollments for lenders, insurance companies, etc.), enrollment status is determined not by individual enrollment periods, but by the entire semester. Students must be enrolled in 6 credit hours per semester to be considered half-time by the Registrar's Office.

Benefit Examples:

Undergraduate Example 1: Mandi, who is an undergraduate student, is enrolled in one A term course and one B term course. She will be considered 1/2 time to the VA for the entire semester because the VA training time for an eight week course is 1/2 time for three hours and full-time for six hours (see the charts above).

Undergraduate Example2: Ryan, who is an undergraduate student, is enrolled in one C term course, one D term course, and one 16-week term course all in the same semester. He will be considered 3/4 time for the entire semester because the terms overlap. Ryan would be at least half-time for the semester because he is in one course in both the A and B terms but he is also in a 16-week term course so he can add that training time to the 1/2 time. The training time for a 16-week term course, for an undergraduate student, is Less than 1/2 time (but more than a 1/4) for three hours (see charts above). When the VA processes the different enrollment periods, they will see that the 16-week term course overlaps the A and B terms. The VA will add the terms together, giving Ryan a status of 3/4 time for the semester.

Graduate Example 1: Mandi, who is a master’s student, is enrolled in one C term course and one D term course. She will be considered 2/3 time to the VA for the entire semester because the VA training time for an eight week course is 2/3 time for three hours and full-time for six hours (see the charts above).


Graduate Example 2: Rebecca, who is a master’s student, is enrolled in two C term courses and two D term course. She will be considered full time to the VA for the entire semester because the VA training time for an eight week course is full time for six hours (see the charts above).


Graduate Example 3: Leslie, who is a master’s student, is enrolled in two C term courses and one D term course. She will be considered full time to the VA for the C term semester because the VA training time for an eight week course is full time for six hours (see the charts above), but she will only be considered 2/3 time for the D term because the VA training time for an eight week course is 2/3 time for three hours and full-time for six hours (see the charts above).


Graduate Example 4: Ryan, who is a master’s student, is enrolled in one C term course, one D term course, & one 15 week term course all in the same semester. He will be considered full time for the entire semester because the terms over lap. His training time for each C and D terms is 2/3 time, and his training time for the 15 week term is 1/3 time. When the VA processes the different enrollment periods they will see that the 15-week term course over laps the C and D terms. The VA will add the terms together giving Ryan a status of full time for the semester.
