The campus Office of Veterans Affairs (OVA) can explain Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) educational benefits, as well as help you apply for these benefits. Eligibility for DVA education benefits rests solely with the DVA (1-888-442-4551) or visit DVA Internet site: The TCC OVA maintains up-to-date files and can advise you on guidelines for receiving and keeping benefits.

Each semester, veterans using DVA educational benefits must report to the campus OVA after completing the enrollment process. New veterans planning to use DVA benefits must report to the OVA before enrolling. Veterans must immediately inform the campus OVA if they drop, add, audit, stop attending, have a class cancelled, withdraw or are withdrawn from class(es) or the college, are unable to attend classes, or make any changes to their enrollment status.

If you are a disable veteran and need assistance, contact a campus Veterans Affairs Adviser. If you are having academic difficulties, check with your campus Veterans Affairs Adviser to see if you are eligible for DVA-assisted tutoring.
