We understand the decision to pursue higher education is an exciting step, but at the same time involves many factors that can be especially daunting. At ICDC College, we’re here for you every step of the way.
We assist our students with the processing of their educational benefits after a student’s eligibility is determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (Dept. of VA). We recommend that all veterans and military service members and spouses initially visit http://www.gibill.va.gov to access general benefit information, determine eligibility and apply for benefits directly online.
Our Department of Veteran and Military Affairs is ready to answer any questions you may have, so that this important process is handled as seamless and as stress-free as possible.
