Welcome Veterans, Reservists, Active Duty and Eligible Dependents!
We are excited that you are interested in pursuing higher education here at Santa Ana College and we look forward to being a part of your journey as a student veteran.
ATTENTION STUDENTS RECEIVING HOUSING THROUGH THEIR EDUCATION BENEFITS.
We understand that many courses have been switched to a remote modality, due to Covid-19. But if you don't want to ge paid the National Average rate, you must enroll in courses that also have campus meetings. If you only enroll in ONLINE courses, you will get paid the national average rate during the duration of those courses. Please see below:
So how can you tell which courses will be reported to the VA? Online courses will be reported as distance because they were intended to be online classes to begin with. If you only enroll in these types of courses, you will receive half the national average, unless you have other courses that are Hybrid, Remote Live, Remote Blended or Face to Face alongside the exact duration of the online course. Hybrid, Remote Live, Remote Blended and Face 2 Face are considered on-campus courses by the VA, because they were originally campus courses to begin with or are still campus courses or Hybrid.
Online (O) - (Considered DISTANCE for VA payment purposes)
Online (O) classes are distance education classes with no scheduled meeting days. Students will log in to Canvas and complete work regularly throughout the week. Other technologies may be required to complete coursework.
Remote Live (RL) - (Considered on campus for VA payment purposes)
Remote Live (RL) classes are distance education classes with weekly scheduled meeting days and times. Students will attend class virtually during the published course times. Canvas and other technologies will be required to complete coursework.
Remote Blended (RB) - (Considered on campus for VA payment purposes)
Remote Blended (RB) classes are distance education classes with both scheduled virtual meeting dates and times and scheduled on-campus meeting days and times. Canvas and other technologies will be required to complete coursework.
Face to Face (F2F) - (Considered on campus for VA payment purposes)
Face to Face (F2F) classes are in person and on-campus classes with weekly scheduled meeting days and times. Students will complete the semester on campus unless the college is ordered to discontinue face to face classes. If face to face courses are discontinued, and the course cannot be completed through distance education, it will be cancelled.
Hybrid (H) - (Considered on campus for VA payment purposes)
Hybrid (H) classes that combine online learning with required live scheduled meetings. These meetings will be scheduled as Web or on-campus meetings. Location, dates, time and instructor contact information can be found on WebAdvisor sac.edu/webadvisor. Canvas and other technologies will be required to complete coursework.
Please refer to the Course Schedule before registering to ensure you're certified on how you'd want to get paid.
[The Fall 20201 Schedule will be available soon]
YOU WILL GET DROPPED FOR NON-PAYMENT AFTER REGISTERING IF YOU DON'T DO THE FOLLOWING:
Chapter 33 & Voc Rehab Students must turn in your Certification Request Form with your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) as soon as you register so we can protect your courses (speak with us if you don't have a COE). Continuing students have no need to provide a COE. Please make sure you give us reasonable time to put the protection on before the 72 hour drop period occurs. Otherwise, you may get dropped for non-payment.
Other chapters (Chapter 35, 1606, 30), will have to pay out of pocket to ensure you don't get dropped, or apply for the CA College Promise Grant through the Financial Aid Office before the 72 hour period occurs for non-pay drop.
