News and Alerts for Veteran Students

COVID-19 Provision for VA Educational Benefits - Ending December 21, 2021

The Veterans Resource Center would like to remind you that the COVID-19 legislation that permitted students to receive the MHA at the resident rate while taking approved online (converted) courses ends on December 21, 2021. Previously, per the VA, if a class was converted from in-person to online as a direct result of COVID-19, it would be certified as on-campus (in-resident) units. That COVID-19 provision ends on December 21, 2021.

While there is legislation in the process (H.R. 5509 – Student Veteran COVID-19 Protection Act) to attempt to extend this provision from December 21, 2021 through June 1, 2022, it is not yet approved. Unless the law changes, you will need to enroll in approved in-resident classes to continue to receive your full monthly housing allowance (MHA) resident rate of pay. Individuals only enrolled in distance learning (online) courses will only be eligible for a monthly housing allowance equal to 50% of the national average of all Basic Allowances for Housing.

For questions in regards to certification and/or classes, please email us at veterans@mvc.edu. Direct questions about GI Bill® benefits to the Veterans Education Call Center at 1-888-GI-BILL-1 or 1-888-442-4551.
