The Veteran Services Liaison is here to help veterans and their dependents use their VA educational benefits to support their college expenses. OCCC recognizes the sacrifice of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces, and the College is honored to assist veterans in utilizing their benefits to their best advantage. OCCC is dedicated to providing students with effective access to any VA educational benefits they may be entitled to.
Students using any type of Federal Veterans Administration (VA) Education Benefit are required to have all prior credit history evaluated. It is the student’s responsibility to request official transcripts from all previous colleges and submit them to the enrollment services coordinator and complete and submit an official transcript evaluation request. A student’s first term of VA benefits may be certified while waiting for transcript evaluation, however no subsequent terms will be certified for VA Benefits until transfer credit evaluation is complete.
