The Admissions & Records Office oversees veterans services to assist veterans, reservists, and dependents of service-connected disabled or deceased veterans with their educational benefits. We provide assistance with completing and filing VA claim forms for federal and state education assistance programs.
Students must get certified every semester by making an appointment to meet with the VA Certifying Official. Under the Chapter listed on your right, review the steps to complete to be certified at Cuesta College, which includes transferring from another school where you have used VA benefits. Each Chapter also has the steps to follow if you have changed your major at Cuesta.
