V.A. financial aid may be available to students who have served with the United States military. The amount of aid will be determined by and allocated through the Veteran’s Administration. Please contact your local V.A. to complete the appropriate paperwork. For further assistance please visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at http://www.va.gov/.
VA Tuition Assistance Return Policy
The Institution will have a policy that returns any unearned tuition assistance (TA) funds on a proportional basis through at least the 60 percent portion of the period for which the funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. In instances when a Service member stops attending due to a military service obligation, the educational institution will work with the affected Service member to identify solutions that will not result in student debt for the returned portion. (Appendix to Enclosure 3, Figure 1, 4.f.2(d)(page 42)).
Active-Duty Military Members receiving Tuition Assistance: If a student withdraws from all courses on or before the 60% point in time of the period of enrollment, calculated using calendar days, a portion of the total of TA funds awarded a student must be returned, according to the provisions of the Change 3, DoDI 1322.25 (July 07, 2014). The calculation of the return of these funds may result in the student owing a balance to the seminary and/or the DoD. In turn, Wesley Biblical Seminary will return all the TA that was unused within the first two weeks of the semester, the add/drop period, when the student drops a course.
