Veterans Services

The Financial Aid Office assists veterans and children of deceased or disabled veterans in securing educational benefits. Members of National Guard and Reserve units may be eligible for benefits also. A student receiving veterans benefits must meet specific veterans standards of progress. Information may be obtained from Jennifer DeRosa in the Financial Aid Office at [email protected] or 620-252-7018.

Coffeyville Community College participates in all Veteran’s Educational Benefits Programs. KSA 73-1216, 73-1217 and 73-1218 provides that, "The board of trustees of every community college, the board of regents of Washburn University of Topeka, the board of control of every area vocational school and the governing body of every other institution of post-high school education which is supported by any state moneys shall provide for enrollment without charge of tuition or fees for any dependent of a prisoner of war, a person missing in action, or a dependent of a person who died as a result of a service-connected disability suffered during the Vietnam Conflict, so long as such dependent is eligible, but not to exceed twelve (12) semesters of instruction or the equivalent thereof at all such institutions for any person."

Tuition Policy for Veterans

In support of the  Veterans' Access to Care Through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 , Coffeyville Community College will grant military veterans automatic in-state residency status and will charge in-state tuition rates for all classes in which military veterans are enrolled.

In accordance with Title 38 US Code 3679(e), Coffeyville Community College adopts the following additional provisions for any students using U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Post-9/11 G.I. Bill® (Ch. 33) or Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (Ch. 31) benefits, while payment to the institution is pending from VA. Coffeyville Community College will not:
