Veterans, Active Duty Military and Reservist Services

Tacoma Community College is approved for the education and training of veterans, the children and spouses of deceased or 100% disabled veterans, and eligible members of the select reserve. Veterans, reservists and eligible dependents should contact Veterans Services at 253.566.5081 to apply for benefits.

Veterans and dependents attending TCC who expect to receive Veterans Administration benefits must meet three minimum standard requirements, in addition to those required by the college:

  • Veterans and dependents using benefits must declare a program of study or degree objective and will be paid only for those classes that apply toward the VA approved program of study.
  • Veterans and dependents must complete the course work paid for. Grades of ‘N’, ‘V’, ‘WI’, ‘U’, ‘R’, ‘S’, ‘Z’ or ‘W’ will result in overpayment; this means some or all the benefits received must be repaid.
  • Veterans and dependents must notify the Veterans Office in Bldg. 14 when changing classes, withdrawing from the college or when deciding to stop attending classes.

Benefits may be terminated for unsatisfactory progress or conduct. If terminated, benefits may be reinstated by a certifying official upon establishing a reasonable likelihood that satisfactory progress and/or conduct will be sustained in the future. This can occur only after all other admission requirements have been met. Selected programs of study are approved by a Washington State Approving Agency for enrollment of those eligible for benefits under Title 28 and Title 10, U.S. Code.
