Veteran Services FAQs

FAQs Homepage

Refer to "NCCC's Admissions and GI Bill Checklists" on the Veteran Services web page or ask to speak to the Veterans Services Coordinator (B-103) for specific information.

Allow at least 8 weeks after your enrollment has been certified by the College for the first check to process. Generally, you can expect to receive a check by the end of the first month of school. Benefit checks are disbursed covering the prior month at the beginning of each new month during the enrollment period.

The most common reason a check may be less than the monthly rate is that the first and last check in an enrollment period are prorated based on the number of days in the month for which you are actually enrolled. Other reasons might include a deduction for an overpayment, or reduced training time after you received your award letter. If you have questions about your check amount, contact the Veterans Administration through the "Ask a Question" page on their website or call 1-888-442-4551.

Most veterans receive 2 Physical Education credits for completing basic training after submitting a DD214 to our Admissions Office for evaluation. It may also be possible to receive college credit for other military training. Transcripts from military or other colleges should be submitted to our Admissions Office immediately upon admission to NCCC.
