Training Time

The amount of educational assistance is determined by the number of credit hours and the length of training period in which the veteran enrolls.

The Office of Military and Veterans Affairs (OMVA) at Franklin University certifies VA benefits based on the actual number of weeks enrolled in each training period.  Due to our accelerated course formats, full-time enrollment (12 hours) at the University does not necessarily reflect full-time payment for your Veterans Benefits.

Training time is determined by the actual number of credit hours enrolled for the class/section, multiplied by 18 (standard weeks in a term as determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs), divided by the actual number of weeks of the class/section.  See calculation and examples below: 

Number credit hours X 18   =  Training time
        Number weeks

4 credit hour class X  18      =   12  (12 hours = FT status)
       6 week class

3 credit hour class X 18       =    9     (9 hours = ¾ time status)
       6 week class

4 credit hour class  X 18      =    6    (6 hours = ½ time status)
       12 week class

Because of the complexity in calculating your payment rate, please contact an Education Case Manager at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) for assistance.
