If a student drops a course or withdraws from school after the drop period and receives a non-punitive grade, the Veterans Association will reduce benefits effective the first day of the term unless mitigating circumstances are found. Mitigating circumstances are circumstances beyond the student's control that prevent the student from continuing in school or that cause the student to reduce credits.
Acceptable mitigating circumstances must be provided in order to pay benefits for the period of attendance prior to the drop date. If they are not provided and accepted, any benefits paid from the beginning date of the term will be considered an overpayment, and a debt may be established.
Mitigating circumstances may be claimed by submitting documented evidence when you withdraw or otherwise incur an overpayment. Claims may be submitted on a VA Form 21-4138 with an explanation of the circumstances. The VA decides whether to accept mitigating circumstance.
