Veteran Services

Palo Verde College is approved for the training of veterans, dependents and reservists leading to a certificate, associate degree or transfer to a four-year institution.

Veteran Services are available through the Financial Aid Office, located in the Student Services Building.

We offer the following resources to our veteran students:

  • Priority Registration
  • Completing necessary VA applications
  • Assist with referrals to other agencies and resources

Important Information

  • It takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks for the VA to process your application and to receive your benefits if eligible.
  • Students must declare a major and are responsible for enrolling in courses required for their major. Failure to take proper courses can lead to a reduction or termination of benefits for that semester. Remember to always check with the School Certifying Official (SCO) about the courses you are planning to enroll in.
  • Our office must report status changes as well as withdrawals immediately to the Department of Veterans Affairs. To avoid possible overpayments of benefits and subsequent billing from the VA, it is imperative that students collecting benefits report all changes, withdrawals, etc. immediately to our office so that we can notify the VA.
