The DMACC Veterans Services Office has been in continuous communication with the State Approving Agency and Veterans Affairs representatives regarding COVID-19. As more details are provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs we will update the information provided here as well as reach out to any students who may be affected.
At this time, the VA is making no changes to how VA education benefits are being administered. School Certifying Officials have been instructed not to make any adjustments to enrollment certifications for changes of mode of delivery (going all online) in response to COVID-19. While there are current VA policies, guidelines and procedures that outline how VA education benefits are to be paid, Congress is currently working on legislation that, if enacted, will alleviate the impact to recipients for a switch to pursuit solely through distance learning.
As our DMACC community transitions to an online format, please continue to email or call if you have questions. This office can be reached at Dlenright2@dmacc.edu, or call Don Enright, 515-964-6278 if you have questions.
