REPORTING OF TRAINING HOURS/HOUSING ALLOWANCE
As a Non-College Degree (NCD) Institution, UMBC Training Centers reports veteran students’ training time to the US Department of Veterans Affairs in clock hours, meaning the actual number of hours per week the student attends training. When a student registers for an approved VA program, the tuition, start date, end date, and number of clock hours are reported to the VA. To be considered a full-time student at UMBC Training Centers, the student must take 18 clock hours of training.
Please note that VA benefits are paid based on clock hours of attendance per week. UMBC Training Centers does not determine eligibility for VA education benefits nor does it calculate housing allowance benefits. It is the responsibility of the veteran student to apply for VA benefits to determine eligibility for education benefits and to estimate housing allowance benefits prior to registering for a program at UMBC Training Centers.
