Veterans' Policies

A veteran or eligible person placed on probation for unsatisfactory progress shall have benefits terminated if his or her academic progress remains below graduation requirements (2.0 GPA) after two terms or semesters. If the veteran or eligible person is allowed to remain on probation beyond this period, he or she will have all veterans' benefits discontinued and any further certification of training benefits terminated.

Simpson University will conduct an evaluation of previous education and training for veterans and eligible persons, grant appropriate credit, shorten the duration of the course appropriately, and notify the student and the VA accordingly.
