Education Benefits and Eligibility Requirements
Of the million veterans currently alive, nearly three of every four served during a war or an official period of hostility. About a quarter of the nation's population — approximately 70 million people — are potentially eligible for Veterans Affairs benefits and services because they are veterans, family members, or survivors of veterans.
Central Piedmont's Veterans Affairs Education Benefits Office strives to meet the Department of Veterans Affairs goal of putting veterans first.
Central Piedmont Community College is approved by the North Carolina State Approving Agency for the enrollment of persons eligible for education assistance benefits from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. The college provides training opportunities at both college and secondary levels for veterans, and eligible dependents (spouse and/or children).
