Satisfactory Progress/Probation
A student receiving VA benefits needs to understand his college's policy regarding satisfactory progress and academic probation (found in the college catalog). A VA student placed on probation has a maximum of two consecutive semesters to return to good standing. Failure to return to good standing within two semesters will make the student ineligible for VA educational benefits.

The student may regain his eligibility for VA benefits for future terms under one of two conditions: (I.) a return to good standing in the college, or (2.) a request for resumption of VA educational benefits is submitted to the VA claiming mitigating circumstances and the VA reinstates benefits based on evidence supporting the student's claim.
