Prepare for Fall Term!

Taking online classes in the fall term while using VA educational benefits? The COVID-19 legislation (H.R.5545 - REMOTE Act) that allowed students to receive the Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) at the resident (in-person) rate, while taking approved courses converted to online training due to COVID-19 ended on June 1, 2022.

Full-time enrollment for the fall term is 12 units or more. Students enrolling in fall courses must take at least 1 unit of an approved "in-resident" (in-person/F2F) or hybrid (HYB) class to continue to receive the MHA at the resident rate. Otherwise, you will receive the online rate, which is half the national average. 

If you have questions regarding the in-resident requirement for VA educational benefits, please contact the VRC by phone at (951) 571-6247 or by email at veterans@mvc.edu. You can also visit the Virtual VRC during normal operating hours.

Student enrollment fees will be waived if eligible.

What fees are not covered by the Cal Vet Fee Waiver?
