Our Mission:

Lower Columbia College Veterans' Services is committed to ensuring that all veterans, active duty personnel, reservists, and their families are aware of the benefits and resources entitled to them. Veterans' Services will provide professional assistance with applying for and using these benefits. 

 LCC participates in the following VA educational programs

Important Reminders

New students are advised to apply for VA benefits no later than one month prior to the first day of class, in order to have the best chance to receive their benefits by the first week of the quarter.

Each quarter, all Veteran students must inform Veterans' Services of final enrollment in classes in order to be certified and receive their benefits for the quarter.
