Veteran's Checklist


Veterans who are interested in attending Volunteer State Community College can get information and help with processing forms from this office.

Veterans, qualified dependents of veterans, and members of the selected reserve who enroll at Vol State under the VA Educational Assistance Program receive assistance in clarifying objectives, establishing career goals and making life/career choices. The Veterans Affairs Coordinator meets with each student who participates under the VA Educational Assistance Program, explains VA eligibility requirements and acts to ensure that all VA and institutional requirements are understood and met.

Approval for Vol State to offer VA training comes with some conditions. Students receiving such benefits must have a degree or certificate plan which must be followed to receive benefits. Take only classes that fulfill your plan. Any Developmental/Remedial classes taught online are not eligible for benefits. If you are not sure if the class you will be taking will be certified for attendance to the VA, contact the VA coordinator's office to find out for certain.

The Department of Education and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau have provided tools to assist propective students in making informed decisions about how to pay for college. Here is a list of websites to assist in researching colleges:
