Pre-Certification of Coursework

This is a courtesy offered by CF in which a veteran can submit his or her schedule for the upcoming semester, and, the college will submit the information to the VA for early processing. VETERANS ARE STRONGLY URGED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS. 

How does this help the veteran?

  1. Initial processing of benefits by the VA for the first time user, can be slow. This will aid in the veteran having no more delay than necessary in receiving his or her benefits (housing or book stipend) they are eligible to receive.
  2. For returning veterans, this will ensure there are no breaks in receiving benefits due to delays of submitting the certification to the VA. 

Once a pre-certification has been processed, no changes in enrollment status or course type (on campus or distance learning) will be made until the final certification after the drop/add period has ended unless directly requested by the veteran.

IMPORTANT: CF has no influence or control over the expediency of processing times by the VA.
