Veterans attending Lincoln College can be eligible to receive physical education credit for military service. The number of credit hours granted ranges from one to four based on the number of years of active service in the military.
Lincoln College must have a copy of the veteran’s DD 214 papers on file for military credit. This is required even when VA benefits are no longer in effect. Also, Lincoln College must have official transcripts from previous colleges (if attended) before college credit can be officially recorded.
Lincoln College has established the following “Standard of Progress” guidelines as a means of determining attendance records:
“A list of veterans and veterans’ dependents enrolled at Lincoln College has been sent to all instructors with instructions for the student and/or instructor to notify the Registrar’s Office if the student ceases to attend classes, withdraws, or gets into an area where failure would be anticipated. The Registrar’s Office will notify the VA immediately upon change in student status.”
Eligible veterans taking one to five hours of credit may receive tuition and fee allowance only. Six hours may be considered half-time status while nine hours may be considered three-fourths time status. In order to receive full benefits a veteran must maintain full-time status with 12 hours. A veteran cannot be on academic probation two semesters in succession.
Further information on specific veterans’ concerns may be obtained from the financial aid office.
