Policies & Guidelines

Policies & Guidelines


Previous education/training evaluation
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) requires that all previous education and training be evaluated for possible credit. Students are responsible for furnishing the FPC Veterans Representative with official transcripts from all schools previously attended. (This includes civilian colleges and universities, CLEP exams, and military transcripts)

Enrollment certification
Enrollment will not be certified to the VA until all necessary documentation has been received by the FPC Veterans' Representative.

Declaring a major
All veterans receiving VA benefits are required to declare an FPC major.

  • Veterans are allowed to take only courses required under the selected FPC degree plan, approved electives, and prerequisite courses. Courses used as approved electives or as substitutes for required courses must be approved (in writing) by your faculty advisor and documentation furnished to the FPC Veterans Representative.
  • The VA will not pay veterans for repeating coursework previously passed at FPC or other institutions. (Grades of "D" may transfer and be applied to your FPC degree program.)

Payment of Benefits
The VA pays on a post-payment system, which means the veteran will be paid for the month after it has passed. Payment is made by the VA Regional Office. The first payment takes six to eight weeks after the term begins. Checks are mailed directly to the veteran's address. Please notify the FPC Veterans' Representative of any change of address.

Withdrawing from courses
Withdrawal from courses may result in overpayments and repayment of any money received for the courses from which you withdraw. Consult with the FPC Veterans' Representative before withdrawing from courses. You must notify the Veterans' Representative after any course changes.

Developmental education
The VA will pay for developmental education courses only if the veteran has taken a Texas Success Initiative assessment and the resulting scores indicate a need for developmental education.

Veterans who are required to take developmental education courses will be withdrawn from all courses if they do not enroll in required course(s).

Financial responsibility
Students are responsible for the cost of all tuition, fees, and books.
