Remedial and Prerequisite Courses


  • All VA students must provide placement testing scores indicating a remedial/refresher 0 level course is required before VA will approve the course for payment.


  • VA will pay for remedial courses provided the course has not previously been successfully completed, and the student test results show the course is needed. VA will not pay to take a remedial course, in which the placement scores indicate the student tested for a higher level course, than the course the student enrolled in.


  • VA will only pay for college level prerequisites provided: the prerequisite course is
    1. listed as a prerequisite course in the university catalog for a course that is required for the student's VA stated objective
    2. the student still lacks general elective courses,
    then VA will pay for the credit.
