Veterans Services Office
We welcome active duty military, veterans, and their families.
The Veterans Services Office at Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) helps military veterans and the dependents of disabled or deceased veterans apply for educational benefits. The office also helps with tutoring and academic and career counseling.
Although the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) must determine an individual’s eligibility for benefits, the PGCC Veterans Services Office provides guidance and the appropriate applications for educational benefits.
Veterans Services is responsible for certifying veteran enrollment status to the VA, which is how beneficiaries are paid. The VA does not cover the cost of continuing education courses, audited courses, or courses that do not count toward an individual’s course of study.
Prince George’s Community College is approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
For Active Duty Students Only
Prince George's Community College requires all active duty military students to consult with their Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their military service before submitting an application for admission to PGCC. Once they are ready to begin, students can contact one of our military and veteran admissions advisors. Additional information that relates to the admissions process can be found under the College's Application Instructions.
To provide comprehensive educational and support services to veterans, active duty, and reserve military members and their families.
Credit Transfer Policy
Students may be awarded credit for prior educational experiences in which college-level learning may be verified through documentation or assessment. A maximum of 45 credit hours may be transferred for any one associate degree, of which not more than 30 credits may have been earned through nontraditional or noncollegiate sources.
Students who have not attended the College for two or more years must apply for readmission. Readmitted students are encouraged to meet with an advisor to determine how the program of interest to them may have changed since their last enrollment.
