  • provide official transcripts of all previous colleges attended

Eastfield's Certifying Official must be notified when:

  • student registers & pays for courses

  • student changes degree plan 

**Failure to report a decrease in enrollment level will delay checks.

  • A veteran may lose future benefits if the student withdraws from all courses attempted during a semester without a documented explanation. 
  • In order to receive certification for developmental courses, the required
  • Assessment Test must demonstrate a need for remediation in specific subjects. 
  • A veteran student may enroll solely in television/distance learning courses, if the courses are included on the student's filed degree plan. 
  • A veteran student must be enrolled in courses required by his/her Educational Degree Plan.** 

** If student is substituting a course on his/her degree plan, a copy of the substitution form must be given to Eastfield's Certifying Official.
