Get Help with Obtaining and Using Benefits

Veteran Student Services has a team of veteran benefit counselors/interns to help you demystify how to obtain and use your benefits. We encourage student veterans and servicemembers and/or their dependents to visit us for help.

Using Benefits at CLC

You must apply for all benefits. Depending on the benefit, some require you to apply only once (VA Federal); others may need to be applied for yearly (State), and Department of Defense must be applied for each semester.

Various government regulations require our office to follow STRICT guidelines. To ensure your educational benefits are processed in a timely manner, please submit your “Veterans Request for Certification” (R4C) immediately after enrolling.

The R4C is located in your “myStudentCenter” in the second row, “Finances” to the left of your bill.
