How Many Unsatisfactory Grades Can I Get Before My I Lose Funds?

Q: How many u’s can you have until they take military funds for school away?

A: The VA won’t take your GI Bill school funds away, but they will suspend paying any additional funds until they are satisfied that what caused you to fail a class has been corrected. Once the school sends notice to the VA that you failed a class, you will have to contact the VA and explain why.

Whether or not you have to pay the VA for that class will depend on if there were mitigating circumstances or not causing you to fail. Mitigating circumstances are something beyond your control, such as a temporary disability that prevented you from attending class.

If mitigating circumstances were the cause, then you will not have to pay for the class and the VA will pay again for you to re-take the class. However, if the circumstances were non-mitigating (within your control), then you most likely will have to pay for the class, but the VA will pay you again to take it over once they have been assured the reason for failing in the first place has been corrected.
