Enrollment for Veterans

While veterans enroll at GCC just like other students, the Department of Veterans Affairs certification requires a little extra effort. Our office can help you get all the educational VA benefits you are due, and act as an intermediary between you and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Begin your enrollment process by following the Chapter information below, and applying for educational benefits at GIBill.va.gov.

Then visit the GCC Veteran Services Center for more assistance.
