Andrews University On-Campus Students Only
Students enrolled in on-campus degree programs may use non-Andrews University grants and loans toward the tuition and fees for an AU/GU course. These grants and loans can be applied toward AU/GU tuition and fees only if the student is taking an equivalent or higher number of credits through on-campus courses. Students who pay for their AU/GU course(s) in this way must register for the course(s) in the AU/GU office.
All students approved for financial aid must be registered for the course(s) within the usual registration periods and must complete the course(s) within the time periods designed by the Andrews University academic calendar and regulated by Griggs University. Students not finishing course(s) within this time frame will automatically receive a deferred (DG) for the course(s).
Students who have served in the military are eligible for transfer credit for courses taken while in the service as established by the American Council on Education (ACE). Army personnel should submit an AARTS transcript; persons in the other services should submit an evaluation of military credit and copy of their DD Form 214.
Veterans' Certification Guidelines:
Andrews University cooperates with the Veterans Administration guidelines for the certification of veterans enrolled at the college. The major guidelines are outlined below for students who are eligible for veteran's benefits.
Applying for Benefits - Veterans should call their VA Regional Office to verify their eligibility and monthly entitlement. A student must complete 12 semester hours each semester to receive full-time benefits. After being accepted, students using VA benefits must contact the Andrews Veterans Clerk at 269.471.6000.
Student Responsibility - The VA pays benefits only for courses that apply toward a student's degree. It is the student's responsibility to make sure that the courses he or she is taking apply toward his or her degree.
Concurrent Registration - If a student registers at Andrews and at another college simultaneously to take a course that will apply toward his or her degree, he or she must notify the Andrews Veterans Clerk in order to get reimbursement for the class at the other school.
Notification of Student Loan to the VA - After the student has registered for classes, the Veterans Clerk will notify the VA of the class load for which the veteran is registered.
Notification of Change of Students Class Load or Major to the VA - The student is to notify the certifying official immediately of any change in major or class load so that the VA can be notified. Within a week after a veteran adds or drops a class (this includes changing to audit). the VA Clerk informs the VA of the veteran's changed class load status. Failure to comply with VA regulations may result in loss of benefits and/or legal action on the part of the Veterans Administration.
GPA Regulations - When a veteran's cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below 2.00, the Veterans Clerk informs the individual immediately that he or she will forfeit all the veteran's benefits if the GPA falls to rise about 2.00 at the end of the semester. If, in fact, the GPA stays below 2.00 for the second semester, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is notified and all veterans' benefits are terminated. Only after the veteran has maintained his or her GPA at a level of 2.00 or above for one entire semester will he or she become re-certified to receive VA educational benefits.
Release of Student Records to VA Authorities - Guidelines given to the college by the U.S. government indicate that the college may release confidential information, including grades, to officials from the VA without prior authorization from the student.
