It is the student's responsibility to report all withdrawals or attendance issues to CPCC's Veterans Affairs Educations Benefits Office (VAEBO) immediately to prevent overpayments. Students are required to complete a VA Schedule Adjustment form and submit mitigating circumstances in writing for evaluation and approval within five business days. Students can request the VA Schedule Adjustment form by visiting the CPCC VAEBO (Mon.-Thurs. 8:00am - 5:00pm, Terrell Building, Suite 233) or email VeteransAffairs@cpcc.edu .

The last date of attendance must be verified by the instructor for all withdrawals.
The VA allows a one-time exclusion from being penalized for withdrawing for up to six credit hours. Students can be paid up to the last date of attendance for those six hours. After that time, students have to provide the VAEBO with mitigating circumstances or repay any benefits received. If the student attended classes throughout the semester and receives a “W” (non-punitive) as a grade, this has to be reported to the VA Regional Office and is not part of the 6-hour one time exclusion even if he/she can document that they attended through the last day of class. Students are responsible for overpayments resulting from non-punitive grades.

Failure to notify CPCC’s VAEBO of withdrawals and continued acceptance of educational funds may be considered fraud. Students are encouraged to register only for those classes they know they can complete.
