I'm using military or military spouse Tuition Assistance, what do I need to do?
I'm using education benefits through Veterans Affairs, what do I need to do?
The VA will not pay for online developmental courses (CCR 092/093/094 or MAT 050/055). If you register for these courses you will be responsible for paying for them and they will not apply toward your housing or stipend from the VA.
Term dates are reported as they appear in the class schedule. Accelerated courses may affect your eligibility. You can calculate your VA Equivalent Hours for classes that are less than 15 weeks to determine your VA rate of pursuit based on the length of your classes and the associated credit hours.
By registering for classes you incur a financial obligation to CCA. If the VA does not cover the full cost of the charges on your account for any reason you are responsible for making timely payment to CCA; failure to pay your tuition can result in being dropped from classes and having your account sent to a collections agency.
