Applying for GI Bill Benefits
Veterans and ELIGIBLE DEPENDENTS*** please visit the following website: http://vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp/default.asp to complete an application for GI Bill Benefits. If you are already approved for benefits you should bring a copy of your award letter to the VVC Veterans Office (Building 52, Window 12) and let us know that you are interested in using your benefits at Victor Valley College (VVC).
GI Bill students must stop by the Veterans Office (Building 52, Window 12) or contact us directly once they have enrolled for each semester so they can be certified with the VA (Certifications are not automatic).
*** ELIGIBLE DEPENDENTS of veterans who are deemed 100% disabled (or deceased) from a service-connected cause may be eligible for GI Bill benefits under Chapter 35.
Education Plan Requirement
As required by the V.A., GI Bill students must have a current education plan in their VA file. New GI Bill students have until the end of their second semester to get their educational plan. Students that are changing their school of certification have one semester before the educational plan is required. The education plan must show the student's declared program and have all prior credits evaluated.
The Certifying Officials can only submit classes listed on the current Educational Plan to Veterans Affairs for processing/payments. It is up to the students to update/follow their educational plan.
Credit for Course Repetition
Students cannot receive benefits for repeating a course that was previously completed successfully. Grades necessary for "successful completion" are defined by a "D" for non-transfer or non-prerequisite classes and by a "C" for transfer or prerequisite classes as outlined in the VVC catalog.
Students assume full liability for overpayments of benefits. To avoid this, students must report any class adjustments to the VVC Veterans Office.
Active duty military may be eligible for Tuition Assistance (TA) from their respective branch of service. Contact your base/post education office for TA forms and additional information.
