Requesting Certification

How to Request Certification

Military-connected students who plan to use VA education benefits must request certification every quarter. New students should check in with Veteran Services first prior to requesting certification so we can initiate your file in our office.

If you plan to use Post 9/11 GI Bill® to fund your education, please secure upload a Certificate of Eligibility or Statement of Benefits to our office. We are unable to process a hold on your registration unless we have a Certificate of Eligibility or Statement of Benefits on file. For questions, please email us at

  • Check your Enrollment Dates in CTCLink account
  • Veterans may be eligible for priority registration - contact the Office of the Registrar for details

Step 2: Register for Classes

  • Register for classes through your CTCLink account 
  • The VA will only pay for courses that are required for graduation from your Program of Study

Step 3:  Submit a Quarterly Enrollment Request (QER) Form
