VA Attendance & Participation Policy

Students using Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) educational assistance benefits at Thomas Edison State College must remain fully engaged in all academically related activities.  Examples of these activities include making submissions to online discussion boards, submitting assignments, and completing exams and quizzes when due. Students must review course calendars for the timing and types of submissions expected. Note: viewing or logging into your courses does not constitute academic engagement. The College will periodically review student progress and engagement with course work during each applicable term. Failure to sign into your courses and complete your scheduled course work on time will result in an amendment or termination of your VA certification which will lead to financial recoupment from the VA for any money paid to students for enrolling in these courses including tuition, housing allowance and book stipend.
