Question
What are the enrollment requirements and minimum number of credit hours I must enroll in each semester to receive VA benefits?
Answer
VA payment rates for chapters 30, 33 MHA, 35, 1606, 1607, and VRAP can be found at VA Payment Rates.

Post 9/11 (Chapter33) benefit recipients must be enrolled greater than half-time (a minimum 7 credit hours during standard full- length terms) to receive housing (MHA) payments with at least one course on campus (pure online rates differ).

VRAP students must maintain Full-Time enrollment (12 credit hours during standard terms) at all times to maintain eligibility.

****Summer term and half-term classes have different enrollment requirements. Typically 6 credit hours is equivalent to full-time during these enrollment terms. Although sometimes unavoidable, registering for half-term classes can affect your monthly entitlement. Please keep in mind your payment rate is calculated based on enrollment hours and dates.
