Certification Process

Your CPCC VA file must be complete for eligibility to use VA Education benefits. All students must attend the VA Annual Certification Workshop and follow the steps below to request certification:

  • Officially register for classes
  • Students using Chapter 33 and Chapter 31 education benefits will need to submit the Request for Certification Form and Program Evaluation before charges are due to secure classes.
  • Print your Program Evaluation to confirm that all classes are required for graduation in your program. This report can be assessed through your My College Account under your Academic Profile
  • If you have registered for classes that aren’t required, meet with your Advisor and make adjustments
  • Students using Chapter 30, 35, 1606 and 1607 will need to pay the charges unless you have financial aid or a sponsor before submitting the forms below.
  • Complete and submit the VA Certification Request Form located at www.cpcc.edu/veterans under the “FORMS” tab
  • Submit your Program Evaluation along with the VA Certification Request Form


    Important Note: If you are required to take a developmental course (example DRE 096, DMA 010) please refer to the Virtual Course Guidelines.  Developmental courses can’t be certified if taken virtually including seated courses with an online lab per federal law.
