    Veteran Services Office

    The College's Veteran Services Office, located in 122 Bladen Hall offers former military personnel and dependents of disabled or deceased veterans assistance with applying for veterans benefits, obtaining tutorial services, academic and occupational advising.

    The College is approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Maryland Higher Education Commission, so that eligible veterans, service persons, and certain dependents of veterans can receive VA educational benefits.

    Only the Veterans Administration can determine your eligibility for Veterans benefits, however the College's Veterans Services Office can provide you with the guidance and appropriate paperwork to apply to the VA for benefits.

    We are responsible for certifying your enrollment status to the VA, which is what gets you paid. The VA will not pay for continuing education courses, audited courses or courses that do not count toward your program of study at Prince George's Community College.

    Please see our list of approved programs of study to select a qualified academic program.

    Eligible persons may receive benefits under one of several types of GI Bill:
