U.S. Veterans and Eligible Dependents Applying for Veteran’s Education Benefits

Eastern Florida State College is fully accredited and approved for veteran’s training. Veterans and other eligible dependents planning on using their veteran's education benefits should contact the Military & Veterans Service Center, Ralph M. Williams Student Center, (Building 11), Room 113, Cocoa Campus and the Student Services Center (Building 1), Room 140, Melbourne Campus at the earliest opportunity. Applications and instructions for completing a VA Education Benefit package will be provided during the initial visit. All new students must also file an admission application and meet all of the admission requirements. Once this is completed and you have registered for classes, contact the Military & Veterans Service Center to request certification for education benefits.

Bring a copy of your application verification for education benefits or Certificate of Eligibility, class schedule, and DD214. Each term thereafter you are required to notify the Military & Veterans Service Center that you are registered and request to be certified. The Military & Veterans Service Center will not certify you automatically.

Veteran Chapter 31 and 33

Once a Certificate of Eligibility (CEO) has been received by the EFSC Military and Veterans Service Center, and the funding has been determined to equal the billing balance for the term, the student will be secured in their classes. EFSC will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement of funding from the VA under Chapter 31 or 33. Students are responsible for paying all tuition and fees that exceed the funding authorization by the due date and time noted within the Important Dates & Deadlines.
