United States Veterans Benefits
Global University has been approved by the agency for United States veterans benefits. This approval is for the independent-study courses leading to an associate of arts degree, a bachelor of arts degree, a master of arts degree, or a master of divinity degree. Tuition, materials, and shipping and handling are paid by the veteran upon enrollment. Reimbursement of qualified expenses is made through the Veterans Administration (VA) following certification from Global University's VA enrollment office. Veterans who are interested in this tuition assistance should request information from Global University's VA enrollment office in Springfield, Missouri.
United States Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES)/Tuition Assistance (TA)
The courses offered by Global University are included in the DANTES catalog listing Distance Education and Training Council Schools that qualify for Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES). Approval for this listing makes it possible for those active in any branch of the United States military to receive tuition assistance for degree programs offered by Global University. To begin studying under this plan, military personnel must obtain a voucher from their military education office. This voucher must be completed and submitted to the Global University VA enrollment office. Global University's application and enrollment forms must also be completed. The application fee must be submitted with the student's application.
Educational benefit payments may be used for the cost of tuition. Students using DANTES/TA are responsible at the time of enrollment for the application fee, materials cost, shipping and handling, and any tuition amount not covered by tuition assistance. Students who desire to use DANTES/TA benefits must enroll through Global University's International Office in Springfield, Missouri.
Policy on Incomplete Courses Funded by VA or DANTES/TA
The time limit to complete a degree-level course is six months. If a student does not complete a course within six months, the student may request an additional six months to complete the course (see "Time Limit for Completing a Course" in the section titled "Course Guidelines and Requirements"). Should a student fail to complete a VA- or DANTES/TA-funded course, a failing grade of 50 percent will be assigned to the student's course grade. This grade will be calculated into the cumulative grade point average that appears on the student's transcript. Reporting this grade to the Veterans Administration is required for VA students using GI Bill benefits.
