Veterans & Active Duty Educational Benefits

Veterans Services

The Veterans Services team is here to help veterans, active duty personnel, and dependents of veterans who use their military educational benefits at BRCC.

Which Programs & Classes Qualify for Veterans Benefits?

Most credit programs at the College are approved by the State Department of Education and the Department of Veterans Services for the payment of veteran educational benefits.

All classes that apply to your program are eligible for benefits. The number of credits needed to receive full housing allowance varies based on term, program, and credit load. Please contact the VA directly for specific questions about housing allowance amounts and book stipends.

Registration and Payment Notes

  • Be prepared to pay for classes if you don’t receive your Certificate of Eligibility before the tuition payment deadline. Call the VA at 1-888-442-4551 to check on your application.
  • If you drop/add any classes after you have been certified, you’ll need to resubmit your certification request (we’ll contact you). The fewer changes you make, the less likely your payments will be delayed.
