The answer depends on a few variables
*This is for the 14-week semester. This does not include the 3-week interim term. However, since there are nonstandard terms for some courses (ex. 1st 7weeks, 2nd 7 weeks, 10 weeks, ect), it is best to contact the Military Veteran Resource Center and review your schedule with a team member to determine what your rate of pursuit will be.
National Guard Grant Tuition Reimbursement forms may be submitted to the Veteran Resource Center at any time during the semester. They are held until grades are posted at the end of the semester before processing and sending to DMA. Forms MUST be submitted NO LATER than 90 days after the end of the term.
In order to certify your classes for federal benefits, you need to make sure the classes you are taking at the second school will count as credit toward your degree at the UW River Falls. Contact the Military Veterans Resource Center for instructions on how to get courses at another school certified.
