VA Certificate of Eligibility (aka VACOE) verifying their eligibility to receive benefits.

Chapter 33/Post 9/11 benefits as long as it also indicates the percentage.
- The VACOE will indicate the percentage of benefits that will be provided. Percentages
are based on the student's length of service.
- Once submitted to the Veterans Services Office at Collin, a copy of the VACOE is maintained in the student's file.
Holding Your Classes
- Student must present a copy of the VACOE (or the eBenefits print-out) to the cashier's office BEFORE the payment deadline. *Student will only be responsible for paying their portion
of the tuition and fees if their percentage of benefits is less than 100%. (For example,
a student who is eligible for 70% benefits will only be required to pay 30% of the
tuition and fees at that time.)
