The GCCC administration, faculty and staff are proud of U.S. veterans for the service to our country! We welcome veteran students and offer VA educational assistance and guidance through the Post 9/11 GI Bill, Montgomery GI Bill, Reserve Educational Assistance Program, Dependents Educational Assistance and VA Vocational Rehabilitation along with their enrollment at GCCC. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (www.va.gov) determines the eligibility of educational benefits for veterans of the U.S. armed forces and their family members. If you or your family members are eligible for veteran educational benefits, the GCCC Registrar’s Office will certify your GCCC enrollment in order for you or your family members to receive these benefits. Students who are eligible to receive veteran educational benefits need to complete a Veterans Educational Benefit Request Form to be considered for the benefits.
Information may be obtained from the Veterans Administration website at www.va.gov to verify individual eligibility and requirements to apply. Once your eligibility has been confirmed, Garden City Community College will assist you in processing the necessary forms. Veterans may contact Donna Boese, VA Certifying Official at 620-276-9605 or email VAREP@gcccks.edu.
The Registrar’s Office works with veterans and service members who are current GCCC students. We assist students during the application process for applying for their benefits and we also certify students’ enrollments to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
