Transient Students

A student may take courses at more than one school that apply to his or her degree. The school that will grant the degree is the student’s “primary” school. All other schools are “secondary” schools.

VA can pay benefits for courses taken at secondary schools. If the student is only enrolled at the secondary school (supplemental enrollment), VA will pay for the credits taken at the secondary school. If the student is enrolled at the primary school and the secondary school at the same time (concurrent enrollment), VA will pay for the combined credit, taking overlapping enrollment dates into account.

If You’re the “Primary” School

If a student takes courses elsewhere that satisfy requirements for his or her degree at your school, then you’re the primary school and the student is a “Guest Student” at the secondary school. The primary school provides a letter (“primary school letter”) addressed to the VA Certifying Official at the secondary school. Keep a copy of the letter in the student’s file.

.    If You’re the “Secondary” School 
If a student takes courses at your school that will apply to a degree the student is pursuing elsewhere, you are the secondary school and the other school is the primary school. The student’s primary school will send you a primary school letter 


Additionally
