School Leadership, as you may recall, as of October 1, 2021, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is rescinding and resetting all 35% Exemptions to standard 85/15 Rule reporting requirements. This means your Education and Training Institution (ETI) will be required to submit 85/15 Rule calculations either: No later than October 30, 2021 for institutions that don’t operate on a term, quarter, or semester basis, covering the previous quarter (July 1, 2021 – September 30, 2021). No later than 30 days after the beginning of each regular school term (excluding summer sessions), as published in the academic calendar for institutions that operate on a term basis, covering the current term. Institutions that meet the necessary exemption criteria may reapply for the 35% Exemption with their 85/15 calculation submission. A completed Statement of Assurance of Compliance with 85 Percent Enrollment Ratios for the corresponding reporting period must accompany any application. VA will provide a response within 90 days. Going forward, all 35% Exemptions will expire after 24 months and must be renewed with a new application at that time.
