Veteran & Military Education Benefits

South Puget Sound Community College is an approved institution to provide education and training benefits to veterans. Our Veterans Office 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.
