Military Credential Assistance (CA) is awarded to a student under assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the amount of CA funds initially awarded. To comply with the Department of Defense policy, Chattahoochee Valley Community College will return any unearned Military CA funds on a proportional basis through at least the 60% of the term for which they were provided.
Any unearned Military CA funds will be returned directly to the military service, not the service member. The calculation of the return may result in the service member owing a balance to the College. If the service member withdraws due to military service obligation, the College will work with the service member to identify a solution that will not result in student debt for the return CA portion. If a service member withdraws after the 60% portion of the term, all Military CA will be considered earned.
