The Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) has indicated that they will 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 until January 1, 2021, or until the school resumes normal operations of resident training. VA is working to immediately implement the new changes to address current and future school terms to ensure students continue to receive their education benefits. There is no action needed on the part of the student.
The last day of class for the semester remains April 28th. Classes are being conducted through online and remote collaboration from March 23 through April.

Note: Any student planning to participate in study away this fall will be allowed to register for fall 2020 on-campus courses during their normal registration window.

Degrees for May 2020 were conferred by Dr. Davis on Saturday, May 9th. You will not see your degree posted to your transcript until May 21st.

If you are in need of a degree verification for employment purposes, you may request one by completing a Degree Verification form and returning to email@example.com.
CLP events have been suspended through June 3. All enrolled students, not graduating in May, have been credited with 4 CLP credits for the spring term. For graduating seniors, CLPs will be awarded once we’ve confirmed that they have completed all other graduation requirements (GERs + major requirements). An amount needed to bring the total to 32 will be awarded to seniors graduating in May.
Students should check with the respective department first to determine if there are specific requirements or processes for that major. For most majors, students should complete the Field of Study Declaration form, which is fillable online. The form should be emailed to the Department Chair of the major for approval. The Chair will forward to Enrollment Services via email. Due to the current circumstances, email approvals are accepted in lieu of signatures.
