Veterans Educational Benefits

West Coast University is approved for training of Veterans and eligible persons for most academic programs under the provisions of Title 38, United States Code. University Financial Aid Directors serve as Certifying Officials for each campus. Students interested in Veterans Educational Benefits should contact the Financial Aid Department for a current list of approved programs. Veterans who are unsure of their eligibility should contact the Veterans Administration. Eligible students must maintain satisfactory academic progress to continue receiving educational benefits.

The California on-ground undergraduate campuses participate in the Post 9/11 GI Bill® Yellow Ribbon program. A limited number of qualified students will receive the award each academic year.  Awards are made on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Additional Eligibility Requirements: Only individuals entitled to the maximum benefit rate (based on service requirements) may receive Yellow Ribbon funding. 

All official transcripts detailing prior higher education credits must be submitted to the Registrar’s office in order to be certified for Veterans benefits.
