Veterans Educational Benefits
Crafton Hills College is approved for the training of veterans and eligible dependents of deceased or disabled veterans. After completing an application for admission, a veteran should complete all necessary forms in the Veteran's Resource Center (VRC), located in CNTL-150.
In order to use their GI Bill®, veterans are required to choose a major and enroll in classes required for that major. Failure to take proper classes may lead to reduction or termination of benefits. Official transcripts from all previous schools and colleges must be submitted to Admissions and Records Office for evaluation before the end of the student’s first term of attendance.
Primary term unit requirements for Chapter 30 (Montgomery GI), Chapter 33 (Post 9/11), Chapter 35 (Dependents’ Educational Assistance), Chapter 1606 (Montgomery - Selected Reserve; Educational Assistance), or Chapter 1607 (REAP) are:
Full-time...................... 12 units or more
3/4 time....................... 9-11 1/2 units
1/2 time....................... 6-8 1/2 units
1/4 time....................... 3-5 1/2 units
Summer Session: *Full-time is considered five units in a seven-week course, six units in an eight-week course or *four units in a six-week course.
If the veteran receives an “F” or “W” grade for non-attendance, he or she may be required to repay the VA from the date he or she stopped attending the class. In order to receive benefits, veterans and dependents must submit a Request for VA Benefits form to the VRC at the beginning of each semester. It is the veteran’s responsibility to promptly notify the Certifying Official of any change of program.
Veterans will be awarded seven units of credit for health and physical education (only for honorable discharge) by submitting a copy of their DD214 member 4 to the VRC.
Veterans on academic and/or progress probation for two consecutive semesters may not be certified for the following semester. Please see the assigned VA counselor for details.
