Veterans' Education Benefits
South Puget Sound Community College is an approved institution for the education and training of veterans, reservists and the children and spouses of deceased or 100% “total and permanently” (with no further exams pending) disabled veterans. The college’s Veterans Office helps those who are eligible to obtain Veterans Educational Benefits. Our School Certifying Official will help direct you through the application process, and work as an instructional and advisory aid between the Department of Veterans Affairs and you as a student of South Puget Sound.
Courses must count toward the program/degree of study that has been declared, and courses under the 100-level cannot be taken online or in a hybrid format. To obtain VA education benefit application materials or to submit them for review and certification, contact the college Veterans Office. The Veterans Office is located in Bldg. 22. The Veterans Office is not the Department of Veterans Administration (VA). The college cannot override VA policies or determine VA eligibility, nor does the college control the issuance of VA Educational benefits. The VA requires 30-45 days to process any paperwork submitted to them. See the Veterans Education Benefits page on the SPSCC website for more detailed information.
