Veterans who believe they may be eligible for benefits can receive information and applications through the V.A. Certifying Official at the University. Educational assistance is also provided to widows or children of veterans who died in service or as a result of service related injuries. Spouses and children of disabled veterans are also eligible for assistance. It is the responsibility of the students to notify the V.A. Certifying Official of any changes in their class schedules.
The Registrar‘s Office promptly reports to the Veterans Administration when notified that a veteran is making unsatisfactory progress or has withdrawn from a class or from studies. Because of requirements imposed by the Veterans' Administration, and as a condition of being certified to receive benefits from the V.A., the student receiving such benefits acknowledges the following policies, which may differ from those required of other students at Lindenwood: The University will notify the V.A. of all terminations, interruptions, or changes in semester-hour load within 30 days. This may change the benefits available to the student.
- The student accepts the responsibility of notifying the Registrar, the V.A. Certifying Official at the University, and his/ her advisor immediately in case of withdrawal from any course.
- The student accepts the responsibility of notifying his/her instructors of any expected absence from class. A student may be withdrawn by the University for excessive absence.
- The Veterans Administration will be informed that progress is no longer satisfactory with the accumulation of 12 or more hours of F grades.
- School of Accelerated Degree Programs students receiving benefits through the Veterans‘ Administration must comply with the University‘s general policies regarding withdrawal, attendance, and satisfactory progress.
