Other Counselors

You can also meet with any VVC Counselor, by visiting the main Counseling Department located in the Student Services One-Stop, Bldg. 23 or calling 760 245-4271, ext.2296 to make an appointment.   Make sure to mention that you are using GI Bill® benefits so they know to create a VRC Student Education Plan (VSEP).

VRC Student Education Plan

The VA requires that GI Bill® students have a current Education plan, prepared by a VVC Counselor, in their VA File. The Education Plan must show the student’s declared program and have all prior credits evaluated.  Therefore, please request all transcripts so they are available for review when you meet with a Counselor.
