Veterans’ Educational Benefits

Normandale Community College is approved as a certifying institution by the Minnesota State Approving Agency for Veterans’ Educational Benefits. Veterans can receive educational assistance through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for full-time and part-time attendance.

Each semester, veterans must officially notify the Normandale VA certifying official of their wish to receive benefits. Veterans must also notify the VA certifying official of the following:

  • Changes in registration, including adds, drops or withdrawals from classes.
  • A change in major.

The College will certify the veteran’s enrollment to the Veterans Administration after the tenth day of the term or may pre-certify if certain conditions are met. The student is responsible for submitting official transcripts for all previous coursework by the end of the first term of enrollment. Transfer coursework will be reviewed and credit given in accordance with College policy.
