The VA has provided UCF with instructions regarding the reporting of course modality for Basic Housing Allowance (BAH) purposes. Per the VA, courses listed as anything other than face to face or mixed-mode (M) formats will be considered distance learning.
Course sections listed as web but normally lecture format (mixed-mode or face to face) will need documentation from the College’s dean, department chair, or director of advising on university letterhead, stating the course was changed to distance learning due to remote instruction for the Spring 2021 term.
Fall Semester is could be challenging to find face to face courses to meet BAH requirements. Please be aware there are LOTS of reasons that course modalities get changed to a distance learning format (Web, Video Streaming, etc.), especially during the summer semester. Changes may not necessarily be the result of COVID-19.
Any questions regarding course modalities for BAH purposes, please contact Joshua “JJ” Johnson at Joshua.Johnson@ucf.edu.
