Return of Funds

The start and end date will be used for each class to determine eligibility.  Using the formula below, Boise State University will be required to return some or all of the TA awarded to you if you did not complete at least 60% of each course back to the military, possibly creating a balance on your student account.

Number of days completed / Total days of the course (start to end date) = percent earned
