Non-traditional (fast-track) terms use a slightly different method of accounting for credits. However, if you maintain the seven credits through a fast-track, you will also be assured of getting BAH. Because of the nature of non-traditional terms, you may be eligible for payment with fewer units, but it is safer to simply use seven-credit the rule of thumb. It is the DVA's responsibility to determine the minimum number of non-traditional courses necessary to gain benefits.
Effective 1 OCT 2011: BAH WILL BE PRORATED. This means that if you are only attending school half-time (over six units) you will only receive HALF of the BAH (rounded up to the nearest 10th, so three-quarter time (75%) will receive 80% of BAH). You will have to attend classes at a full load (12 units or more for Fall and Spring, 6 units for Summer) in order to receive the full BAH payment.
