       Additional regulations that affect Veterans Benefit eligibility
       For satisfactory academic progress, the following academic performance criteria apply to all veterans or
       other students eligible for VA benefits. The Veterans Administration requires that all students receiving
       VA education benefits maintain satisfactory academic progress. Iowa Central defines satisfactory
       academic progress as achieving a cumulative 2.00 GPA.  If a veteran does not make at least a “C”
       average (2.00) on all hours pursued, a warning period of one term will be granted. At the end of the
       warning term a cumulative GPA of 2.00 must be reached. If a 2.00 is not attained, the VA benefits
       will be withdrawn and the student will be academically ineligible to receive VA education benefits.
       Reinstatement of eligibility is obtained by either reaching the 2.00 cumulative GPA or a student can
       submit a letter of appeal. If the appeal is approved, eligibility for the VA benefits will be reinstated
       on a term probationary status.

       Grade and Cumulative Grade Point Average (G.P.A.)
       Registrar - Ext. 1020
       The Grade Point Average is determined in the following manner:
         1. Allow 4 points for an A; 3 points for a B; 2 points for a C; 1 point for a D; and 0 points for an F.
         2. Multiply the number of points equivalent to the letter grade received in each course by the
           number of credit hours for the course to arrive at the quality points earned in each course.
         3. Divide the sum of quality points by the total number of credit hours. The quotient represents
           the Grade Point Average for the semester.
       The Cumulative Grade Point Average is determined in the same manner as the Grade Point Average,
       except that all of the student’s work, not including developmental courses, are used in the computation.
       Developmental courses are graded with AP, BP, CP, DP, and FQ.
