Veterans Administration Educational Benefits

Department of Veterans Affairs seal

Welcome to CVCC! We are proud to help coordinate your VA benefits with your educational goals.

CVCC is approved for Veterans Administration Educational Benefits. Most programs are approved but any student wishing to use VA benefits should contact the VA Certifying Official in Student Services.

Benefits Information


  • You must qualify to receive veteran's education benefits. Eligibility is determined by Veterans Affairs, not CVCC.
  • Visit the GI Bill website to apply for benefits. The VA will provide you with a Certificate of Eligibility.
  • CVCC has no control of VA policy and rulings. It is your responsibility to comply with VA rules and procedures covered in appropriate laws, regulations, and pamphlets.

Getting Started

  • If you are a new student at CVCC and wish to use VA benefits, then open the New VA Student Checklist for instructions. No certification can be made until all these requirements are met.
  • VA students are responsible for the payment of tuition, fees, and books at registration. Only Chapter 33 students may defer tuition and fees by completing a tuition waiver each semester; see your Certifying Official.
  • VA payments are made directly to you after classes have begun. VA students are encouraged to apply for Federal Financial Aid as well; go to the CVCC Financial Aid web page for information.

Note: Corporate and Continuing Education programs are not approved for VA educational benefits. However, some certification programs may qualify for reimbursement by the VA. Check with the VA before enrolling in any continuing education program. Call 1 (888) GIBILL1 or 1 (888) 442-4551.

For more information contact our CVCC VA Certifying Official: Elen Gibbs at 828-327-7000 ext. 4205.

Veterans - Honor. Integrity. Courage.
