Veterans Affairs (VA)
The Office of Financial Aid assists students in applying for VA benefits. Most programs at Dabney S. Lancaster Community College (DSLCC) are approved by the State Department of Education for the payment of VA benefits. All students receiving VA benefits must be enrolled in a curriculum that leads to a certificate or degree.
Students receiving VA benefits must report any changes in enrollment or curriculum to the Financial Aid office. When certifying a veteran student's enrollment status, only those courses applying to the curriculum will be certified to the Veterans Administration for payment of benefits.
DSLCC is designated as an institutional member of Service Opportunity College (SOC). The SOC, composed of over 1,000 colleges and universities, functions in cooperation with the Department of Defense and the Military Services, including the National Guard and the Coast Guard, to help meet the voluntary higher education needs of service members.
Students wishing to contact the VA may do so by calling 1-888-GIBILL1 or going to the web site at www.gibill.va.gov.
