Veteran Students

Gutenberg College’s degree program leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts is approved for students receiving veterans’ benefits. The student must provide a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under chapter 31 or 33 of the GI Bill® benefits.

Veteran Benefits

Students who have provided a certificate of eligibility but whose funding has not yet been received at Gutenberg may attend and participate in classes for up to 90 days from the date Gutenberg received the certificate of eligibility. During this 90 days, if the student is unable to meet his financial obligations to Gutenberg due to delayed disbursement funding from the VA, Gutenberg will not impose any penalty, including the following: assessing late fees; denying access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities; or requiring the student to borrow additional funds.

Veterans benefits are dependent on the veteran student maintaining his academic standing. Failure to do so may result in a loss of benefits.

Previous College Experience

Because of its integrated core curriculum, Gutenberg College admits all students as freshmen and rarely waives any courses on the basis that a student has already taken a similar course. Before admission, however, a student may petition the college to evaluate his previous education or training and grant appropriate credit or a waiver. If a student eligible for veteran benefits is granted credit or a waiver, his file will contain a written record of what reduction in class time is proportionate to the credit granted, how this reduction will affect the student’s schedule, and the fact that Gutenberg notified the student concerning these determinations.

No tuition adjustments will be made for waived requirements.
