Veteran Affairs benefits
Change of enrolment status
It is your responsibility to notify the VA Certifying Official if you reduce your hours of enrolment by withdrawing from a unit, terminating your enrolment, or making any other changes that would affect your payment status. If you withdraw or drop a unit, you may have to repay all or part of the benefits you received for the unit(s).
A withdrawal from the University or a course drop may result in retroactive loss of benefits. The reduction in training time reverts back to the beginning date of enrolment for that semester unless VA finds mitigating circumstances in the case of withdrawals and drops. VA benefit recipients who drop or withdraw will be responsible for providing any documentation of mitigating circumstances to the VA. Failure to notify your VA Certifying Official of changes in enrolment may result in an overpayment of benefits. The Department of Veterans Affairs determines and collects overpayments from you.
It is the responsibility of the student to update any change of address through ISIS, you are also required to mail a change of address form (VA Form 572) to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
A not available, deferred or supplementary assessment(s) grade for both undergraduate and graduate students must be converted to a permanent grade within one year from the date it is assigned or benefits for that course will be terminated which may result in an overpayment liability. Graduate research courses are excluded from this provision.
Repeating a subject
The DVA will not pay you to repeat a course(s) for which you have received a passing grade (P or higher), whether the course was taken at the Australian National University or at another institution of higher learning. It is your responsibility to notify your VA Certifying Official if you are repeating a course under approved circumstances. If proper notification is not provided, an overpayment may occur and YOU will be held liable for repayment.
VA education benefits may not be paid for subjects not required to meet minimum graduation requirements (even if your instructor advises it would be beneficial for you to take the class).
