The St. Philip's College Veterans Affairs Office will assist any student who is eligible to receive federal educational benefits under the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The SPC VA Office will also assist with eligibility under the Hazlewood Exemption Act provided by the State of Texas.

Veteran Benefit Programs

Students wishing to use federal VA educational benefits should seek guidance through the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs or the Veteran Affairs office at the college. Alamo College Veteran Affairs staff will assist students by providing certification of courses and transmitting enrollment information to the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Veterans and dependents must declare a goal (follow and approved degree program) in order to be eligible to receive educational VA benefits. The VA will only pay for courses in the declared program and any exceptions require compliance with VA rules.

GI Bill:

The benefit is designed to help service members and eligible veterans cover the costs associated with getting an education or training. The GI Bill has several programs and each is administrated differently — depending on a person's eligibility and duty status.
