Academic Year 21-22 Semester Guidance for VA Benefited (Chapter 31 and 33) Students

The VA has stated that for Chapter 31 and 33 only classes that were originally "in person" and then converted to "online" will be counted as "in person". If students (you) want to receive the full housing stipend for the Academic Year 21-22, VA students must pick one of the classes from the Spring 2022 Converted List (converted from face to face to online) or enroll in an "in person" class that has remained in person or in a class that has a portion of the class "in person" to be certified as having an in person/resident class. This provision will not be offered AFTER June 1, 2022.

We will continue to update you as changes occur so please check your UAF email often.
