Veteran’s Educational Benefits
Veterans, war orphans, and dependents of disabled veterans who plan to attend the college and claim benefits under any of the federal or state educational programs should apply directly to their nearest Department of Veterans Affairs office for a Certificate of Eligibility. This should be presented no later than the time of registration to avoid delay in payment of the subsistence allotment. Students must be enrolled for 12 or more semester hours to be eligible for full-time benefits. For more information, contact VCC
at 1-800-940-9422 and ask for the Veteran's Coordinator.
Upon submission of the Certificate of Eligibility letter from the VA by the veteran who qualifies for the Chapter 31 or Post 9/11 Chapter 33 G.I. Bill™ benefit to the Valor Financial Aid Department, Valor will not impose any penalty including the following, for tuition and fees covered by the VA:
- The assessment of late fees,
- The denial of access to classes, libraries or other institutional facilities,
- The requirement that the veteran borrow additional funds to cover the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement of a payment by the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Please note that the veteran will be assessed late fees, charged payment plan fees etc. and required to make payment from the veteran’s own funds or by borrowing additional funds for charges not covered by the VA.
