Graduate students are able to utilize certain military benefits if eligible.  To be considered full time with the VA, students must be enrolled in one three credit hour class each term.  Students should be registered in advance so their enrollments can be sent to the VA at least thirty days prior to class starting.  Students receiving  VA benefits must provide Limestone University with a copy of their certificate of eligibility prior to starting classes.  Student using Military Tuition Assistance (TA) must have their TA approved two weeks prior to class starting and provide a copy of the approved voucher to Limestone's Military Service Center.  Please visit the military benefits website to learn more,

Failure to enroll in a sequential course each term may result in a loss of full-time VA benefits.
