Those who are a veteran, have served or are currently serving in the military, are the spouse or child of a veteran, and are seeking eligibility for benefits, contact the WVC Veteran office at 509-682-6817 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The office is located on the Wenatchee campus in Wenatchi Hall, room 2136. Reduced tuition and fee waivers are available for eligible veterans, military service members and dependents.
The veteran office serves as a liaison between WVC and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. A representative is available to assist veterans and dependents with activating VA educational benefits, as well as provide information and additional school funding and community resources. Individuals using VA educational benefits must submit their class schedule to the WVC Veteran Office each quarter. Omak students may submit schedules and other documents to the Omak student services office. Additional guidelines and requirements for accessing and using benefits can be found at www.wvc.edu/veterans.
Selected programs of study at WVC are approved by the Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board’s State Approving Agency (WTECB/SAA) and the Washington Student Achievement Council’s State Approving Agency (WSAC/SAA) for enrollment of those eligible to receive benefits under Title 38 and Title 10, USC.
Schools should limit student enrollment to 85 percent veteran enrollment per program. In the event that a veteran wishes to enroll in a class that has already reached the 85 percent cap, he or she may do that but will not be eligible for VA funding. Chapter 35 and 31 students may still enroll even if the 85 percent has been realized. WVC does not and will not provide any commission, bonus or other incentive payment based directly or indirectly on success in securing enrollment or financial aid to any persons or entities engaged in any student recruiting or admission activities or in making decisions regarding the award of student financial assistance.
There is a veteran’s lounge located in the library that is available to all veterans. It offers privacy, a lounge space and free printing.
