Northeast State Community College - We're here to get you there

Request for Certification

An Enrollment Certification must be submitted before the start of each semester that you plan to use your Veteran Education Benefits.  This is your way of alerting our office that you would like to use your Veteran Education Benefits, specify the semester you would like to use them and providing us with permission to release your enrollment information to the VA. 

It is important that you complete this form as soon as you are registered for class, so there is not a delay in payment. Veteran benefits cannot be certified without the completion of this form.

To streamline the process, we have combined our Request for Certification and Deferment of Fees form into one online form.

Please click here to complete and submit the required form.

If you have having difficulty accessing or submitting this form, please feel free to contact us at or 423-354-5305
