In order for your VA Education Benefits to be certified, the following requirements must be met:
Veterans, Guard, and Reserve must supply a copy of their DD 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty to Montgomery Community College.
Veterans, active servicemembers, Guard and Reserve, and survivors and dependents must apply for admission and submit a copy of your acceptance letter from Montgomery Community College to the VA Certifying Official.
Veterans, active servicemembers, Guard and Reserve, and survivors and dependents must request official transcripts (high school or equivalent, college, College Level Examination Program, or Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support test results) to be sent directly to Montgomery Community College Admissions Office from all other educational institutions attended. Within two-to-three weeks after you apply for or transfer VA benefits, you will normally receive a letter from VA informing you that they have received your application and are processing it.
Approximately 45 – 60 days (sometimes longer, depending on the workload at the Regional Processing Office in Atlanta ) after your application has been submitted, you will receive two copies of a letter from the VA entitled "Certificate of Eligibility." Copy Number 2 is for the VA Certifying Official at Montgomery Community College for inclusion in your VA file.
Veterans, active servicemembers, Guard and Reserve, and survivors and dependents may also apply for additional financial aid through FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Click here to get started.
