Veterans, service members, and their survivors and dependents may apply for their VA Educational Benefit Programs with the help of the staff at the Veterans Resource Center (VRC).
VA students must complete and submit a REQUEST FOR ENROLLMENT CERTIFICATION form for each semester in order to collect their benefits. Also, all veterans must submit a SEPP (Student Education Program Plan) form for each semester that they wish to be certified, which can be obtained from the VRC academic counselor or in General Academic Counseling.
VA students must submit all of their official prior postsecondary transcripts (civilian) to be evaluated and declare a program (major) for them to be evaluated. Military credit will be applied upon application for graduation.
Fullerton College, as required by federal regulation and DVA policy, conducts an evaluation of all VA students’ prior postsecondary education, experience and training (civilian and military) before certifying their third enrollment period. Also, as required, Fullerton College grants the appropriate credit, shortening their training period proportionately, and notifies the DVA and these students the amount of credit allowed towards their declared program.
Unless otherwise notified, all programs (majors) in the College catalog are approved for the training of VA students. Transfer programs are approved contingent upon Fullerton College having current articulation agreements with the universities offering the transfer programs.
VA students cannot be certified if their cumulative grade point average (overall GPA) remains below 2.00 for two successive certified enrollment periods. Once their overall GPA is 2.00 or above, their subsequent enrollment periods can then be certified.
