VA Accelerator Program
The VA Accelerator program’s courses are designed for veterans wishing to further their education and/or entrepreneurial business skills. All courses are distance education programs and are completed entirely through online access. This distance education awards students post-secondary education credits and certificates of completion. These programs have an open enrollment policy where students may enroll individually at any time. In this non-traditional classroom setting, students are involved in self-study where they set their own pace and schedule. The CBA retains complete authority over decisions related to certification completion.
All students enrolled in the VA Accelerator program are required to complete StartUp Bench 1.0 prior to beginning any other courses. Once StartUp Bench 1.0 is completed, the student may the rest of the track courses in any order. The CBA does not accept any transfer credits from any outside institution due to the specific nature of our offered courses.
Program Track Changes
Any student wishing to change their program track must do so by contacting the Support Page within 72 hours of enrollment. Any changes the student wishes to make passed 72 hours may not be considered. The Support Page is located at centerforbusinessacceleration.com/ContactUs.aspx. Follow all directions listed on the page and include a brief description of the desired change. Track Changes will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, and any possible transfer credits will be determined solely by CBA administration.
Veterans enrolling in the VA Accelerator program must be approved by their Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) case manager. Veterans are eligible for this program if they meet the requirements set forth within Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations Chapter 31. Through our partnership with the VR&E and the department of Veteran Affairs (VA) students in this program will have waived tuition. See the Cancellation and Refund Policies below for information regarding cancellations and program withdrawals.’
Once a student finishes enrolling, he or she will have immediate access to all program materials. Students can complete course materials at any time and in any order before his or her program terminates. Any student who wishes to cancel their program must submit a cancellation request within the first 96 hours of signing the enrollment agreement; due to the immediate access students receive.
If no cancellation request is received within 96 hours of enrollment, or if the cancellation is not granted, students then have 180-360 days to complete all requirements for the VA Accelerator program.
Any and all cancellations are submitted via the support page, located under the heading, “Support,” on the Center for Business Acceleration’s website. Once on this webpage, the student filing for cancellation should fill out all requested information.
The Center for Business Acceleration asks our students to submit cancellation requests exclusively via the support page in order to track for quality assurance. Everything within this support page receives a stamp recording the time and date of submission. This stamp ensures that all requests are processed and filed within a timely manner, and allows for a more accurate review process.
Once the student has submitted his or her cancellation request via the support page, administrative personnel will review the request. Administrative personnel determine cancellation eligibility based off of student’s time enrolled in the program and the cancellation request timestamp. If administrative personnel find that the student submitting the cancellation request has frequently cancelled courses with the Center for Business Acceleration in the past, the request may not be granted.
When a cancellation request has been fully reviewed by administrative personnel, the student will receive a notification within two business days. If no notification is received within two business days, the student should submit an inquiry on the Support page. After notification has been received, the student will be informed about refund options. (See “Refunds” below.)
Refunds will be awarded to those students whose cancellations are approved by administrative staff. Student’s who have frequently cancelled courses in the past may not eligible to receive refunds.
Upon registration, students receive immediate access to any and all materials within the course. Due to our program’s accessibility, refunds will only be awarded to individuals who submit a cancellation request within 96 hours of enrollment.
If a student cancels within the VA Accelerator Program, his or her VR&E case manager will be notified and payments from the Department of Veterans Affairs will cease.

All students must have reliable Internet connections, word processing capabilities, and an up-to-date Adobe Flash Player in order to fully participate in the program and complete requirements successfully.
