VA Benefits – Rate of Pursuit
Posted: July 16, 2013 at 10:52 am, Last Updated: January 21, 2014 at 10:50 am
VA calculates rate of pursuit by dividing the number of credit hours (or credit hour equivalents) being pursued by the number of credits considered to be full-time by the school. The resulting percentage is the student’s rate of pursuit.
The monthly housing allowance is paid if rate of pursuit is more than 50%, and the student is neither on active duty nor the Chapter 33 spouse of a person on active duty.
