Veteran Assistance

Veteran's Assistance Veterans seeking educational benefits are given appropriate forms and instructions regarding the procedures required to enroll at Southern. Upon enrollment, the forms are then certified by the appropriate College Veterans Representative official and copies forwarded to the appropriate Veterans’ Administration (VA) Office. Benefits, which are determined by the VA, are calculated based upon the number of credit hours attempted in the veteran’s academic program. The courses attempted are closely scrutinized to insure that all classes are required in the degree program in which the veteran is enrolled.
