Welcome to Calhoun Community College – veterans, national guard/reservists, and dependents/survivors are eligible for VA education benefits.


Students receiving VA education benefits must provide the VA Certifying Official with a list of registered classes each semester for continuation of monthly benefit payments. This can be done by completing the Certification Request for VA Benefits Form (Word document that may be completed on your computer and then printed out. If you don't have Microsoft Word, you may download this pdf version).

Please remember that you can only receive benefits for courses that must be completed to meet graduation requirements for your stated degree. If you change your major, please change it in the admissions office and in the VA Office.

Veterans and National Guard/Reservists (Chapter 30, Chapter 1606 and Chapter 1607) must verify their enrollment on the last day of each month through WAVE (Web Automated Verification of Enrollment) website www.gibill.va.gov/resources/verify_attendance/ or by calling 877-823-2378.
