Eligibility Info

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official US government web site at benefits.va.gov/gibill.

Benefits Coverage

When applying for benefits the student must declare a major. Payment of educational benefits is based on the number of units in which a student is enrolled. Benefits will only be paid for courses required for the declared major. Once a satisfactory grade has been earned, the student may not receive benefits for a repeated course.* Benefits are restricted on some types of courses. Students should always check with the Feather River College Certifying Officers before registering for courses.

Eligibility Requirements for Each Program

Satisfactory Academic Progress

The Veterans' Administration requires that veterans maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward a degree. This includes:

  • maintaining a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 and
  • completing at least 67% of attempted units

Veterans who become academically disqualified must follow the school's criteria for reinstatement after academic disqualification. Feather River Colleges SAP policy can be located here.

*Course Repetition

A course may be repeated for VA benefits only if repetition is necessary to successfully satisfy specific major requirements. Veterans may repeat a class more than once and receive VA educational benefits if the condition that required the initial repetition still exists.
