South Puget Sound Community College is an approved institution to provide education and training benefits to veterans. Our Veteran & Military Services helps those using education and training benefits by guiding students through the application process. Our school certifying officials work to be an instructional and advisory aid between the Department of Veteran Affairs and you as an SPSCC student.

Honorably Discharged Veterans and Spouses will receive Priority Registration on their official course registration date. All newly admitted students must attend the New Student Advising and Registration orientation and will register on that day.

Steps to Accessing Veteran Benefits

  1. Apply to SPSCC and set up your student email.
  2. Get placement testing.
  3. Submit DD 214, Member Copy #4 and Certificate of Eligibility from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
  4. Submit transcripts. All official transcripts must be sent to the school for evaluation, including Military Transcripts. Fill out the Application for Transfer of Credit if necessary.

Submit your VA Enrollment Confirmation form every quarter. Late registration or failure to submit this form at the time of registration can delay stipend payments and the ability to be held in classes pending tuition payment from the VA.

Submit your VA Attendance Verification every quarter. This form allows you to self-certify that you have commenced attendance in your classes. This verification triggers a notification to VA for your tuition payment and BAH stipend.
