How to apply for Veterans Benefits
If a student wishes to apply for veteran’s benefits, an application for benefits (VA Form 22-1990) can be completed online at www.gibill.va.gov. For students who have used veteran’s benefits at another school a request for change of program or place of training (VA Form 22-1995) can also be completed online at www.gibill.va.gov.
Please provide the following documents to the College upon admission:
- A copy of the 22-1990 or 22-1995 completed online.
- A copy of the veteran’s DD214.
- A copy of the certificate of eligibility received from the VA if available.
- Military transcripts (if applicable).
- Transcripts for all post-secondary level education and training the applicant has received.
An evaluation of all prior post-secondary level education and training must be completed by the Academic Dean prior to the first scheduled day of classes of the Veteran’s first term of enrollment. Preliminary education evaluation will be completed with unofficial transcripts. Once it is determined that credits are transferable, official transcripts must be obtained for verification. Official transcripts must be received prior to actual transfer credit to be awarded. The Registrar’s office is available to assist the student in obtaining the official transcripts.
