The Ayurvedic Studies Program (Levels 1 and 2) at The Ayurvedic Institute is approved by the New Mexico State Approving Agency for Veterans Education (SAA) for eligible students to receive education benefits from the US Department of Veterans Affairs. These students are required to abide by the policies of the Ayurvedic Institute and the Department of Veterans' Affairs.
VA students' records must have previous education and training, including a Joint Services Transcript.
Evaluation of progress of VA students will be conducted by the Institute’s evaluation policy schedule. In order for a student to be considered making satisfactory progress, the student must meet both attendance and academic minimum requirements in each trimester as per our Student Handbook. If the student is failing to meet minimum requirements in either academics or attendance upon evaluation, the student will be determined to not be making satisfactory progress and the VA education benefits will be suspended (by the Institute’s certifying official submitting a 22-1999b).
Reinstatement of a VA student’s educational benefits: If, 30 days after suspension of a VA
student’s educational benefits, the student is meeting the minimum academic and attendance requirements, the education benefits will be re-instated by the Institute’s certifying official by submitting a 22-1999.
Refund Policy for VA Students
It is understood and agreed that the following refund policy will be applied to veterans and other eligible persons: In the event the veteran or other eligible person fails to enter the course, or withdraws, or is discontinued therefrom at any time prior to completion of the approved program length for VA students, the amount charged to the student for tuition, fees, and other charges for the completed portion of the course shall not exceed $10 (only if a registration fee is charged) plus the pro rata portion of the total charges for tuition, fees, and other charges that the length of the completed portion of the course bears to its total length. The completed portion is the total number of days the student was scheduled to attend (from first to last date of attendance) multiplied by the scheduled hours of attendance per day. Refunds will be totally consummated within the thirty (30) days after termination.
