    Non-College Degree Programs

    The GI Bill® is available for training at non-college-degree (NCD) Institutions. This includes the training in areas such as HVAC repair, Welding, Nursing, and barber/beautician school.

    The payment amount varies depending on the GI Bill program you are utilizing and the type of non-college-degree school you are attending. You can get more information on the different benefits/programs and how to apply for your benefits at va.gov/education/about-gi-bill-benefits/
    Most of our programs at WCC are approved for VA Benefits in addition to Financial Aid.  In order to use your VA Benefits at WCC please follow these steps:
    1. If you have never used your benefits please apply on-line at va.gov/education/how-to-apply
    2. If you have used your benefits at a different school you will need to complete a Change of Program or Place of Training form 
    3. You will receive a Verification of Benefits or Certificate of Eligibility from VA, please bring this to the Certifying Official at WCC when you enroll.
    4. The Certifying Official will then complete an Enrollment Certification and submit it to VA. Processing can take up to 10 weeks.
    If there is a change in your enrollment status at any time, please notify the Certifying Official to avoid any overpayments that you may have to refund.
