Veteran’s Affairs

The Veterans Affairs Office, located in the Financial Aid Office on the first floor of the Gooch One-Stop Student Center on the Corsicana Campus, offers assistance to veterans and their dependents. This office helps students obtain complete admission and enrollment requirements and obtain various benefits.

Navarro College is authorized by the Department of Veterans Affairs to certify students enrolled in our degree programs for benefits under Chapter 30 (Montgomery G.I. Bill – Active Duty), Chapter 1606 (Montgomery G.I. Bill – Selected Reserve), Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Service), Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 G.I. Bill – Active Duty), and Chapter 35 (Dependents’ Educational Assistance). Eligibility and chapter is determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Veterans Affairs Office offers assistance to Veterans and their dependents. This office helps students obtain and complete requirements for admissions and enrollment in order to qualify for various benefits including multiple types of Hazlewood Veteran, Legacy, Child or Spouse of 100% Disabled P&T or IU.

Each Veteran or dependent student must follow courses on his/her degree plan. In order to be considered a full-time VA student, the student must meet all enrollment requirements. Full-time status is determined based on the equivalent of 12 credits taken consistently over a full length semester.

Veteran students who are using Federal Education Benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs must request for their courses to be certified by submitting the online Request for Certification. Requests for Certification can be found here https://selfservice.navarrocollege.edu  > Financial Aid > Form Links (right side of page) > VA Enrollment Certification or by logging into Self-Service and following the steps. For assistance or questions please email Mark Sjostrom at mark.sjostrom@navarrocollege.edu.

Students can only be certified for courses that are on his/her degree plan unless he/she is in the last semester before graduation (i.e., all required courses have been fulfilled on the active degree plan). In the event that a Veteran student is in the last semester before graduation, he/she is authorized to take courses outside of the active degree plan in order to reach fulltime status.

Veteran students can only be certified for repeat courses if the course was failed with an “F” grade or the grade fails to meet the minimum standard required for their program as listed in the college catalog unless he/she is in the last semester before graduation. In the event that a veteran student is in the last semester before graduation, he/she may be authorized to repeat courses that have met graduation requirements. In these situations seek assistance from Mark Sjostrom at mark.sjostrom@navarrocollege.edu.

For information pertaining to class attendance and the effects of nonattendance on Veterans Affairs benefits, veteran students should see the section entitled Attendance of Student with Veterans Benefits (Student – Attendance – Attendance of Student with Veterans Benefits).
