COVID-19 UPDATE: Information About the "Pass / Fail" Option 2 Grading and How it Impacts VA Benefits

Federal regulations state that VA funded students may have benefits reduced if they select the "Pass/Fail" option and do not pass.  If the student's benefit has already been paid directly to the student or to the university, the reduction of benefits could create a debt that the student would be responsible for.  Due to various requirements, the timing and amount of the reduction of benefits does vary.  Please read our VA Benefits and the Pass Fail Option document for more details.
