Dropping a class(es) or withdrawing from the University of Arkansas:
Students who wish to drop a course or withdraw from the University of Arkansas will need to submit a Drop/Withdrawal Request Form. This will notify the VRIC to report your change to the VA. Overpayments may result in a debt letter being sent directly to the student.
Using Your Benefits At Another School:
If you would like to take courses at another college to meet requirements for your degree at the University of Arkansas, you may do so by having an approved Parent Letter sent from the University of Arkansas to the school in which you wish to take classes. Students may also combine their credit hours, if they wish to increase their benefits if they are taking courses at more than one school at the same time. In order to take courses at another school, you will need to meet with a VA Certifying Official at the Veterans Resource and Information Center.
Verify Attendance (Monthly Requirement): VA.Gov
- All students using Chapter 1606, 1607 and 30 benefits must verify attendance with the VA monthly in order to receive your benefit. Usually no earlier than the last calendar day of each month, but sometimes sooner.
