Information on Benefits During COVID-19

VA has worked with Congress to preserve GI Bill® benefits for impacted students during this difficult time. The new law allows for VA to continue to pay benefits regardless of the fact that the program has changed from resident training to online training. Also, students will continue to receive the same monthly housing allowance payments that they received for resident training extended to June 1, 2022

How To Determine If A Course Is Resident Or Distance Learning For VA Certification

  • A course will be determined as a RESIDENT course for the Spring 2022 term if the course description contains a on-campus location, meeting day and timeStudents must be fully vaccinated with your record on file via WebAdvisor/Self Service register for these courses.
  • A course will be determined as a RESIDENT course for the Spring 2022 term if the course description contains a meeting day and time. Example: Section XXXX will meet 02/01/2021 - 06/07/2021 Tuesday 6:00-8:55PM, Distance Education/Online, Room WEB. Course descriptions for RESIDENT courses are worded many different ways, but they will always contain a meeting date and time.
  • A hybrid course will be determined as RESIDENT course for the Spring 2022 term if the course description contains an on-campus meeting day and time with additional instructional hours/week via internet.  Students must be fully vaccinated on file via WebAdvisor/Self Service to register for these courses.
  • A course will be determined as a DISTANCE course for the Spring 2022 term if the course description DOES NOT contain an on-campus location or online meeting dates and times.

If you are unsure about whether a course is considered “RESIDENT” or “DISTANCE ” for VA certification purposes, please feel free to send an email to our Certifying Official, Debra Ayers.
