We certify veterans who are seeking to use the VA benefits listed above to obtain an Associates degree, complete a Certificate program, or obtain units to transfer to a 4-year University.
We do not determine eligibility of benefits; that is determined by the Department of Veterans' Affairs.
Note: The VA requires their students have a VA Student Educational Plan he/she understands that lists required coursework for his/her program of study. These plans, developed between an RCC counselor and you will serve as your road map so you can chart your progress in completing your goals. Since this plan is so important for your benefits and being successful in college, it is necessary to first see a counselor to select and discuss your specific program of study. This way, he/she can gauge your interests and aspirations through a personal discussion with you to make sure you are aware of various coursework associated with specific programs and eliminate any misunderstandings about program requirements, too.
Ideally, the VA Student Educational Plan should only be done one time and a student will work on it during their time here at Riverside City College.
