Veteran benefits eligibility

Eligible veteran service members of the U.S. Armed Forces are welcome to apply Montgomery GI Bill and Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to programs at all degree levels. Basic Housing Allowance (BAH) benefits are excluded. Your eligibility and benefits amounts must be determined by the Veterans Administration prior to your enrollment. If you need more information about applying VA benefits to your Ashworth College education, a Military Services Advisor is happy to answer all of your questions.

How to enroll

Because of GI Bill requirements, the way you enroll depends on the type of program.

Veteran students enrolling for Undergraduate Certificate, Associate Degree, and Bachelor's Degree courses must enroll on the Term Enrollment Model academic calendar of set start/end dates. TEM courses maintain ongoing academic deadlines in the style of a typical school calendar. (See TEM Academic Calendar below.)

Veteran students enrolling in Career Diploma, Career Certificate, or Master's Degree courses can enroll any time, all-year long through our standard Open Enrollment Model. Because these courses have no set start/end dates or meeting times, there is no need to wait for a new semester if you're ready to enroll.

If your're ready to enroll or need more information about enrolling in Ashworth College, contact a Military Services Advisor who is happy to answer all of your questions by phone at 1-877-758-7630.

TEM course components and requirements

  • Each course is 8 weeks and is made up of 8 weekly lessons/modules.
  • Lessons include lecture notes, review questions, and a multiple-choice exam.
  • Multiple-choice exams and threaded discussions participation is required each week.

TEM attendance and participation policies

  • Student attendance and participation in courses is determined by timely completion of tasks within each lesson–these include completion of multiple-choice exams and participation in weekly threaded discussions as outlined in the threaded discussion.
  • When students fail to complete course/lesson tasks in a timely manner, they will be contacted by the Course Instructor to determine the cause for non-participation in the course. In extenuating circumstances, students will be given a grace period of 3 days past the lesson due date to complete the tasks for that particular lesson.
  • Failure to complete lesson tasks (multiple-choice exams and threaded discussion posts) in a timely manner will result in a lower or failing grade in the course.
  • Students are expected to finish all course work within the 8 week time frame specified for each course. In extenuating circumstances, students may submit a written course extension request to the office of the Registrar. Extension requests must be submitted after week 6 and before the end-date for a course. A 4-week course extension may be granted at the discretion of the Dean and students must complete all remaining coursework by the revised course end-date.
  • Students who do not complete all course work by the course end-date (or the revised end-date in cases where an extension has been granted) will be given a course grade based on actual course work submitted against the total course requirements.

TEM Course add/drop policy

Students may drop a course and enroll in an alternative course by submitting an add/drop request to the office of the registrar at any time during the open registration period for the course being dropped. Approvals of all add/drop requests are at the discretion of the registrar. The drop/withdrawal date will be the date the form was received by the registrar's office.

A new Enrollment Agreement will be processed for the added course and the student will be responsible for providing Ashworth College with new tuition assistance documents.

Tuition refunds for drop/withdrawal of courses are calculated as follows:

  • Before Course Start Date: Tuition refunded at 100%
  • During Week 1: Tuition refunded at 80%
  • During Week 2: Tuition refunded at 60%
  • During Week 3: Tuition refunded at 40%
  • During Week 4: Tuition refunded at 20%
  • After Week 4: Tuition refunded at 0%
