Louisiana College is approved by the Veterans Administration (VA) as a training facility for eligible veterans, service personnel, reservists, children and widow/widowers of veterans. LC’s Va School Certifying Officer (SCO) collects and processes all required VA documentation.
Once the Department of Veteran’s Affairs has received your application and all the necessary documentation, the claim will be processed. Veterans and eligible dependents will receive notification of this action in the form of a Certificate of Eligibility. This certificate will indicate the type of benefit you are entitled to, the number of months you have to use your benefit and the date your benefit will expire.
The VA SCO acts as a point of contact and liaison for the student, the college and the Veterans Administration and collects and processes all required VA documentation. Note that the VA SCO is not part of the Veterans Administration, but is an employee of Louisiana College.
