Remedial and Prerequisite Courses

 

  • All VA students must provide placement testing scores indicating a remedial/refresher 0 level course is required before VA will approve the course for payment.

     

  • VA will pay for remedial courses provided the course has not previously been successfully completed, and the student test results show the course is needed. VA will not pay to take a remedial course in which the placement scores indicate the student tested for a higher level course than the course the student enrolled in.

     

  • VA will only pay for college level prerequisites provided the prerequisite course is:
    1. listed as a prerequisite course in the university catalog for a course that is required for the student's VA stated objective
      or
    2. the student still lacks general elective courses.
