Enrollment Certification Request
Each semester, you must complete the CCAC Veterans Enrollment Certification Request Form in order for your education benefits to be processed. If you have questions about the form you can stop by anyone of the Office of Military & Veterans Services locations on each campus. The form is completely electronic and can be submitted on any device with internet capabilities.
Before submitting you Veterans Enrollment Certification Request Form you must review your current CCAC degree plan and make sure that all of your scheduled courses are required for graduation. Under VA policy we are only able to certify courses that satisfy a requirement for completing your credential, this includes remedial (which can only be taken as an In-person, on-campus format) and prerequisite courses as well. If you register for courses that are not part of your degree plan requirements you will be responsible for the tuition and fees.
In addition, you must report all changes, including change in credits, withdrawing from a course, incomplete grades, change of major, and change of address, to OMVS.
To avoid delays, schedule your classes and turn your enrollment certification request in early for each term you are enrolled in. Certification is not automatic, so it is important to complete this form in a timely manner to ensure your benefits are not delayed. Our processing time during non-peak time is up to two weeks upon receiving your request. Avoid peak-time which begins the last full month of each term through the end of the next term's first full month. Peak time takes our office up to four weeks to process due to the increase in traffic volume and time sensitive reports due at the end of each term. Please note that CCAC and VA process in the order of date received. VA's standard time frame of processing is four to six weeks.
For those receiving tuition payment from their benefits, if you have not brought in your enrollment certification in time for us to process your benefits before the tuition payment date on your registration, the college may assess late fees, which you are responsible for paying.
