Web Site: www.va.gov is a helpful Web site provided by the government for veterans.

The Office of Veteran Affairs, located in the Student Services Office, provides enrollment services and general information to students who are eligible for benefits under the Veterans Administration (VA) Program.

Courses offered by Morgan Community College, (with certain exceptions), are approved for the training of veterans and eligible dependents under Chapters 30, 31, 32, 35, and 1606, Title 38, U.S. Code (P1 815). Students who plan to utilize Veterans Administration (VA) benefits while attending Morgan Community College should contact the Office of Veteran’s Affairs immediately after making the decision to attend MCC. A six- to eight-week VA processing time should be anticipated for new applicants.

It is the student’s responsibility to notify the Office of Veterans Affairs at MCC of any address changes and/or enrollment changes such as course adds and drops, change of major, other schools attended, and any other information related to their academic standing.

Veterans must submit a copy of their DD214 and official transcripts of grades for any previous college education when submitting their Application for Admission to MCC. Failure to provide this institution with a written record may result in serious delay in educational benefits.

Students who are applying for VA benefits are responsible for payment of tuition, fees, and books, whether or not benefit payments have started.

Satisfactory Progress

The Veterans Administration (VA) expects all students who receive veterans educational benefits to make satisfactory progress and systematic achievement toward an educational objective or be liable for repayments to the VA. Satisfactory progress and regular class attendance are expected of all students receiving veterans benefits. If a student who receives veterans benefits is placed on academic suspension, benefits are terminated and discontinued for the duration of the suspension.

Unearned Military Tuition Assistance Policy

If a student drops a course prior to the census date, 100% of any tuition and fees for that course(s) will be cancelled and any Military Tuition Assistance paid for that course will be refunded to the Military Service Branch.

If a student withdraws from a course after the census date due to being called to active military duty a full credit is applied to the student’s account and 100% of funds are returned to the Tuition Assistance program.  If a student is receiving Tuition Assistance and withdraws from a course between 21% and 60% of the course by their own choice, a calculation of unearned Tuition Assistance funds is prepared on a proportional basis as seen in the schedule below and may result in a balance due to MCC from the student for the return of TA dollars, as well as any other charges the student is responsible for outside of the TA dollars.

For all unofficial drops/withdrawals we will attempt to determine your last participation date in the course(s) and will use that date for the return calculations. If the last date of participation cannot be documented, we will process at 50%.
