Veterans Services Center

We look forward to helping you achieve your academic and professional goals.

CCD has more than 200 U.S. veterans using their education benefits received through the GI Bill®*. And with our help, you can join them in reaching your educational goals! To enroll, you will complete both the CCD enrollment process and the enrollment process to receive GI Bill Benefits.

While you are a student, you might be seeking a connection with other veterans, academic assistance, or an outside source for other important matters. The Veterans Services Center invites you to contact us to learn more about benefits for veteran students. Start by using this to help you transition into CCD's vibrant and open-learning environment.

Important Information

*GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. Government website.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance through Department of Defense must be set up with the student’s service branch prior to the beginning of the semester. Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, the application process, and restrictions. This money is usually paid directly to the institution after billing is completed for the semester. 

Once the student receives their authorization for TA, they must alert the Veterans Services Center and Cashier office. The student is responsible for adhering to all payment deadlines regardless of when TA funds are applied to their account.

Please send all completed TA Authorization Forms to Cashier since they will handle the billing and to the Veterans Services Center.

You may receive a full refund of your tuition and fees for any classes you drop and for any classes canceled by the College through the census date. The census date for standard classes is listed on the Academic Calendar. The census date for all classes can also be found online through your CCD Connect account.

No refunds or financial credits are given after the census date or for courses concentrated into one week or less. Financial Aid students may have your aid adjusted; check with the Financial Aid Office. All unearned TA funds will be returned to the service branch based upon when a student stops attending.

For students with military service obligation, please see our guidelines: Active Duty Orders/Deployment/Reserves Guidelines

If you qualify for a refund, you should receive a refund through the BankMobile Disbursements refund process. In some cases, a refund will be credited back to the same credit card that was used to pay tuition.
