PNCA welcomes veterans and family members of veterans who qualify under the provisions of the United States public laws pertaining to their education.
The Office of the Registrar as the School Certifying Official (SCO) supports veterans through the process of applying for benefits, and certifies enrollment with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) each semester.
The VA website also has an online application for VA benefits. Once approved to receive benefits, the recipient will receive a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) from the VA.
In acknowledgement of your service we are waiving your deposit fee.
We ask that you submit the Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to the Office of the Registrar. Eligible veterans and eligible family members of veterans must be accepted into the Undergraduate or Graduate programs to be eligible to receive VA benefits.
Any veteran receiving VA benefits while attending PNCA is required to obtain transcripts from all previously attended schools including military transcripts and submit them to the school prior to enrollment for review of prior credit.
Please contact the Office of the Registrar directly for more detailed instructions on how to apply for benefits, or how benefits may be applied at PNCA.
For general questions about VA education benefits and eligibility, you may contact the Department of Veterans Affairs at:
