VA Application Process

Steps to Apply for Veterans' Benefits

  1. Apply for admission to Clovis Community College.
  2. Access the Department of Veterans Affairs web site at: and complete your Electronic Application through "VONAPP" (Veterans ON-line Application).  VA will send you a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) in the mail.
  3. Send all official college and military transcripts to Clovis Community College Admissions Office for evaluation. Students can request their official JST military transcripts from (enlisted, officers and warrant officers, both active and veterans from all Army components, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Navy). Air Force personnel should contact CCAF to receive transcripts (CCAF Transcript Request).
  4. Have your class selections approved by Academic Advising and declare a Program of Study.


Once you have your classes approved by Academic Advising, bring your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) and the 'Request for VA Certification' form you and your advisor sign to the Financial Aid Office and ask that it be given to VA Coordinator. She will then verify your enrollment and tuition payment and electronically certify your enrollment to VA. This 'Certification' process must be repeated each semester.
