The Collin College Financial Aid/Veterans Affairs Office is not a division of the United States Department of Veteran Affairs. We serve as a liaison
between the VA and those students of Collin College participating in a VA education
program. There is no "official" VA representative on campus.
Our office can assist with the processing of VA forms required to determine eligibility as well as to certify student enrollment to the VA. Our office is available to answer (many) questions about veterans education benefits, to certify enrollments for the VA and to monitor student degree plans and academic progress.
Because a student's entitlement is based upon the number of credit hours for which the student is enrolled, the veteran's enrollment status and academic progress is closely monitored by the Regional VA Office. If the VA finds a problem, the Veteran Affairs Regional Office will report the problem in writing to the student. However, the Financial Aid/Veterans Affairs Office at Collin College will NOT receive such notification. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the student to respond to any letter that is sent to them by the VARO.
The Collin College Financial Aid/Veterans Affairs Office will be glad to assist you and answer any question we can. In order to assist each student with their VA certification, we strive to ensure that each student fulfills his/her responsibilities under the VA program.
