Veterans Services - Veteran Education Benefits Office

Pierce College Veterans Education Benefits Offices act as liaisons between students using VA education benefits at Pierce College and the Department of Veterans Affairs. You should contact your nearest office after you have completed your S.O.A.R. session or seen your advisor so that your file can be completed before you register for classes.

Contact your Veteran Education Benefits Office if there is any change in your enrollment status, contact information, courses added or dropped, or receiving incomplete grades.

If you have not already activated your GI Bill Education Benefit, please do so using the Veteran’s Online Application (VONAPP) at the GI Bill website, www.gibill.va.gov. For assistance with your application, you can contact them at 1-888-442-4551 between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. our time. The VA will process your application in the order it was received and it will take between 2 and 12 weeks for completion.
