Veteran’s Educational Services

Georgia Northwestern Technical College assists armed services veterans and other students eligible for veteran’s education benefits from the Veteran’s Administration (VA). The Office of Financial Aid coordinates with other campus offices to provide assistance and counseling. The veteran should be prepared to sustain initial school costs since benefits will not begin for several weeks after enrollment. Students receiving VA benefits must adhere strictly to a planned program of study as indicated on his or her appropriate school and VA forms.

Program changes are to be reported promptly on appropriate VA forms through the office of financial aid. All dual majors must be pre-approved by the VA office; therefore, prior notification is imperative. All students receiving VA educational benefits are also required to report changes in course load, withdrawals, or interruptions in attendance to the Office of Financial Aid to minimize personal liability resulting from over-payment of VA benefits.
