Veterans Benefits and Certification

Building 1, (Lobby), 541-463-5663, lanecc.edu/esfs/veterans-education-certification-information or email VAEdBenefits@lanecc.edu

Programs at Lane Community College are approved by the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs as a qualified training institution for students eligible for VA education benefits. All applications for VA educational benefits and enrollment certifications are processed through the VA Regional Office in Muskogee, OK; 1-888-442-4551 or gibill.va.gov.

Eligibility rules - VA Education Benefits are complex and students may have choices to make to determine which benefit chapter they wish to utilize. All who qualify for benefits need to submit an application to the VA through va.gov Students may qualify for more than one VA Benefit Chapter but can only be certified for one at a time. For more information, contact VA Educational Benefits at VAEdBenefits@lanecc.edu.

Credit load/payment - For payment purposes during a standard term, 12 credits is considered full-time. A credit load less than 12 credits is prorated at the rate determined by the VA benefit chapter the student is receiving. For non-standard terms (summer) or courses that do not follow the standard term length, the actual dates of the course are reported to the VA.

Program of study - Students using VA educational benefits must be enrolled in an approved degree or certificate program and only courses applicable toward the degree or certificate and their prerequisites can be certified for VA payment.

Academic Progress Standards - Academic Progress Standards are listed in this catalog and are provided to new students upon initial establishment of your VA file at Lane.  

Schedule changes, drops and adds - Students using VA benefits must report all schedule changes made after a term planner has been submitted.  Schedule changes may impact a student's VA reimbursement, particularly those occurring after the term's refund period (first week of the term). Students should communicate with the Veterans Benefits Office before making schedule changes, drops, or adds to determine the possible impact on education benefits.

Important Veteran Benefit Information

Course applicability - Only courses satisfying program requirements (or prerequisites) outlined in a student's curriculum guide or graduation evaluation form can be certified for VA purposes. If a student takes a course that does not fulfill a program requirement, it cannot be certified with the VA. Excessive electives, for example, that are not needed to fulfill a student's program requirements, cannot be certified with the VA. Payment of tuition and fees for courses that do not meet VA applicability rules are the student's responsibility. In order for prerequisites to be certified with the VA for major requirements in math, English, and writing, testing results from Testing Services must indicate they are necessary. Students needing remedial courses (below 100 level) must enroll in the in-class version (not online) in order to receive VA benefits for these classes.

Repeating courses - Classes that are successfully completed may not be certified again for VA purposes if they are repeated. However, if a student fails a class, or if a program requires a higher grade than the one achieved, that course may be repeated. Payment of tuition and fees for courses that cannot be certified with the VA are the student's responsibility.

Program changes - Students utilizing VA benefits must keep their program of pursuit current with the Veterans Benefits Office and on their Lane account. Students are not certified until discrepancies of a declared program are resolved. The program declared is reported to the VA every term.

Grades - Individual grades are not reported to the VA but non-punitive (No Pass, Audit) grades are reported. Students receiving these grades at the end of the term will have an amended certification processed with the VA. This may result in a benefit adjustment as determined by the VA. Students are encouraged to successfully complete all classes for credit to avoid VA debts.

Program planners - All students wanting to use VA education benefits must submit a completed term planner to the Veterans Benefits Office each term. VA certifications are not processed without a term planner. The term planner must be signed by Academic Advising. To ensure course applicability and compliance with VA regulations, each term before classes are certified, the student's registered classes will be compared to the program planner. Only those classes required for successful program completion will be certified with the VA. Students are encouraged to communicate with Academic Advising prior to registering for any classes to ensure they are applicable and required for the program they are pursuing. Term planners should be received in the Veterans Benefits Office no later than 45 days before the term starts to ensure time for processing. Submission later than 45 days prior may result in delayed receipt of VA benefits. Changes to a previously submitted term planner will require either a new planner to be submitted or an email from your advisor confirming the course is applicable to your program.

Certification - New students are required to complete the intake document packet with the Veterans Benefits Office to establish your VA file at Lane. These documents must be completed before we can process a certification to the VA. This initial establishment of your file includes providing official transcripts from prior schools to determine if credit has been earned, and submitting a VA certificate of eligibility (or equivalent from eBenefits). 

Certification for a term occurs after the student has registered and submitted a term planner. A new term planner is required every term. Certification can occur up to 120 days before the term begins. Our standard is to process all VA certifications within 30 days of the term starting. Students will receive an email from the VA at the time their certification is processed. This will be sent to your my.lanecc.edu email account. Students should review the certification email and notify the Veterans Benefits Office if a discrepancy is identified. Initially, credits only are reported to the VA. After the first week of the term, tuition and fees are reported. Students using CH 33 benefits should see the VA funds credited to their Lane account approximately 2 - 4 weeks after the term has started.

VA payments - VA students should monitor their school's financial account on a regular basis. Failure to monitor and inquire about unpaid charges may result in late fees or the inability to register for upcoming terms.

In accordance with 38 USC 3679(e), Lane's policy is to not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds because of the individual's inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from the VA under Chapter 31 or 33. If this should occur, please contact the Veterans Benefits Office so that any discrepancies can be resolved.  

VA and financial aid payments operate within different time periods. Students should not assume when the VA will make payments to them personally, when they will be applied to their school account, or when financial aid refunds will be dispersed. Students receiving financial aid in conjunction with VA benefits will not receive financial aid funds until their Lane account is paid in full. Unforeseen circumstances may occur which could delay when the VA payment is received. Students should also monitor their eBenefits account to see when VA payments are scheduled for deposit to their personal bank account.

Flight Technology - An addendum to the Lane Course Catalog is the Flight Technology Information Bulletin, or FTIB, which details current flight training costs (hourly aircraft rental and instructional rates, etc.). This addendum will be provided to the veteran student upon first contact with the Flight Technology Office.

Prior credits (transcripts) -Students applying for VA benefits at Lane who have received college credits at other schools, using VA benefits or not, must provide official transcripts to Lane before their first certification is processed to the VA. Joint Services Transcripts (JST) will be requested by Lane personnel. Air Force veterans will need to request their military transcript from the Community College of the Air Force. These transcripts ensure all prior awarded credit is applied toward the student's program at Lane and that passed courses are not repeated. Students' past enrollments may also be checked with the National Student Clearinghouse. 

Lane email - Communication with VA students by email is done through the student's my.lanecc.edu email account. Students should periodically view their school email to ensure they do not miss important communication related to your VA benefits. Email can be accessed through myLane.
