If you are collecting education benefits from the VA, you will need to get certified to provide proof of your registration at BCC for the VA either monthly or by semester (depending on the benefit). Once you have registered for classes, visit the Veterans Affairs Resource Center with a copy of your bursar receipt for the semester you are registered for. Our team will fill out the appropriate paperwork to certify your enrollment and submit it to the VA. After a few weeks, follow up with the VA to find out if your paperwork is being processed by calling 1-888-GIBILL-1. If the VA has not received your paperwork, let the Veterans Affairs Resource Center know and we will resubmit your paperwork for you.
Changes to Your Course Schedule
If you decide to add or drop classes, you must let the Veterans Affairs Resource Center know immediately because the VA must be notified of any change in your status. If you drop classes you may be responsible for paying back the VA for the cost of that course depending on the circumstances. Complete a form 1999-b, which must be submitted to the VA. This form must be signed by BCC’s certifying official before it can be sent to the VA.
