HUD VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH)

  • VA converts credit earned during nonstandard semester to equivalent credit hours. VA makes the conversion, not schools. Schools must report actual credit.
  • Rate of Pursuit (Chapter 33 Non-Standard Term)

    In a standard semester for Chapter 33 student the rate of pursuit is determined by dividing the credit hours pursued by the full-time equivalent (normally12). For instance, 7 credit hours divided by 12 would be 58%. Chapter 33 students' rate of pursuit must be more than 50% to receive the monthly housing allowance.

    For non-standards terms, the equivalent credit hours will be determined prior to computing rate of pursuit. For instance, 4 credit hours in a -week term would be the equivalent or 12 hours or 100% rate of pursuit.
