CCBC Welcomes Veterans & Military Personnel

Eligible veterans and eligible dependents who attend CCBC can receive VA Educational Benefit payments according to the VA program.

The Veteran Certifying Official certifies the enrollment of eligible veterans and dependents enrolled in approved programs of study. All of the college degree and credit certificate programs are approved for receipt of veterans education benefits.

Learning options and benefits for veterans

CCBC offers more than 100 associate degrees and certificate programs. Obtain a degree, certificate, transfer to a four year university and/or update your job skills. The CCBC faculty and staff are here for you. Eligible veteran students may participate in distance learning (telecourses, online courses, interactive video courses, fast track courses) and independent study.

CCBC offers valuable benefits to veterans, with a dedicated Veterans Certifying Official on each campus to provide one-on-one assistance and counseling concerning all VA Education Benefit Programs and financial aid. This includes coordinating all VA paperwork, a review of pertinent information on state and federal tuition assistance, waivers, scholarships and funding for college.

For updates on any changes in policy or procedures or for any veterans benefits information, contact the Veterans Certifying Official in the Financial Aid Office on the campus you wish to attend.
