Veteran's Benefits

This page is designed to assist veterans who would like to utilize their educational benefits at ACC.

Getting Started at ACC

  1. Compare educational benefits

    Compare your options with these resources:

  2. Apply for benefits
     
  3. Request ACC to certify your benefits

    Using the contact information on the top-right of this page, submit the following to our School Certifying Official:

    • Form DD-214 (discharge form, Member-4 version) and Certificate of Eligibility (or letter of entitlement from the VA) - this is received by applying at EBenefits
       
    • Request for Certification - This form is required every semester
       
    • Once the Request for Certification is submitted, email any schedule changes to vets@arapahoe.edu

     IMPORTANT! Please note:

    • Online Developmental Courses - The VA will not pay for online developmental courses (Any class that starts with a 0, ex. MAT 045). If you register for these courses you will be responsible for paying for them and they will not apply toward your housing or stipend from the VA. (On campus developmental classes will be covered.)
       
    • Term dates are reported as they appear in the class schedule. Accelerated courses may affect your eligibility. You can calculate your VA Equivalent Hours for classes that are less than 15 weeks to determine your VA rate of pursuit based on the length of your classes and their credit hours.
       
  4. Apply for Financial Aid
     
  5. Utilize ACC's resources for veterans
