How to Apply
The CGCC Veterans Services Office is the liaison between you, the veteran or dependent of a veteran, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The office will provide you with the necessary paperwork to apply for your educational benefits. Below are the steps you will need to take to start this process.
New students: Apply with the VA for your GI Bill benefits if you have not done so already. Click on "Apply for Benefits" here.
New students: Follow all the normal steps for applying to and enrolling at CGCC, which can be found here.
New students: Meet with a CGCC academic advisor to determine your program of study and select your classes within this program of study. Be certain to obtain a copy of this program of study checklist from your advisor.
Make sure you also sign up for New Student Orientation, which is required for all new-to-college students.
Continuing students only: Advising is strongly recommended, but if you do not desire academic advising, you may enroll in classes and submit forms directly to Veterans Services. We will verify that your classes apply to your program of study, as required by VA.
All students: Complete and submit necessary paperwork to the CGCC Veterans Services Office after you are finished registering for classes. Select the appropriate chapter below to determine what you will need to submit.
