Veterans’ training has always been important to us at LeTourneau University, and we are fully approved for veterans training. If you plan to attend under a public law benefiting your military service, you should contact the Veteran’s Administration and the V.A. Office in the Registrar’s Office as early as possible. You should also enclose a copy of your DD214 form with your application. The Hinson-Hazelwood Act for Texas Veterans is not applicable to private school.
Please inform the Veterans Certifying Officer (VCO) in the Registrar’s Office at LeTourneau University when you receive your approval from the V.A. Students under the veterans program (including veterans, wives, widows, and students under Dependents Indemnity Compensation) should contact the VCO each semester for clarification BEFORE registration begins. Students in the veterans program are responsible for furnishing correct information of records and all changes of status to the VCO. To be considered a full time student under one of these programs, you must be enrolled for a minimum of 12 semester hours in your current major with approval by an appropriate advisor. If you have a double major, only one major can be certified during a semester. No minor can be certified either.
The minimum academic standards required for receiving V.A. Educational Benefits are as follows:
Satisfactory Progress: A student who is receiving V.A. Educational Benefits must maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 to be considered as making satisfactory progress.
Probation: Students who fail to achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.00 shall be placed on probation for one semester of summer session. If a student achieves a semester or summer session GPA of 2.00 or better during the probationary periods but has not achieved the required 2.00 cumulative GPA, the student may continue to be on probation for one more semester or summer session.
Unsatisfactory Progress: If the student on probation fails to achieve a 2.00 semester or summer session GPA at the end of the first probationary period, the student shall be reported to the Veterans Administration Regional Office (VARO) as making unsatisfactory progress. A student who fails to achieve a 2.00 cumulative GPA at the end of the second consecutive probationary period shall be reported to the VARO as making unsatisfactory progress.
