All students using VA Education Benefits for the first time at PPCC are required to attend a VA Education Benefits Briefing.

We know that starting college and also navigating the VA education benefits process can be stressful and sometimes frustrating. In order to help alleviate this, we have developed a briefing for all military-connected students (veterans, reservists, spouses and dependents).

This is an opportunity to provide you with valuable information regarding the support services PPCC provides and help guide you through the transition to college student.

Topics covered in our briefing include:

  • PPCC requirements

  • VA education benefits process

  • Key resources, on and off campus, to help you succeed


There are three ways you can view our VA Education Benefits Briefing:

(1) Live Briefing: Attend a live briefing in which you can get the benefit of seeing/hearing the information first hand and then get a chance to ask questions direct to our certifying officials.

Upcoming Live Events:  We are in the process of revising our Live Benefits Briefings events.   Our anticipated return of Live Briefings is:
