Las Positas College Student Veterans.

Evaluation of Course Requirements for Current Major

All students receiving Veterans Benefits are required to submit official academic transcripts from all schools attended before, during or after military service--whether or not benefits were received or units completed. Transcripts should be addressed directly to the Veterans Office at Las Positas, and will be forwarded to the student's permanent Admissions and Records file. Enrollment will only be certified for one semester pending evaluation of prior credit. These transcripts will be used when determining prior credit for courses that satisfy major requirements when completing the student's Evaluation of Course Requirements.

All veterans must make an appointment with the counseling office during their first semester in attendance, in order to complete a VETERAN' S EVALUATION OF COURSE REQUIREMENTS FOR CURRENT OBJECTIVE. Evaluations cannot be done on a drop-in basis. The evaluation is required prior to certification of a student's second semester, and if and when a student changes to a new major a new evaluation must be completed prior to further certification. Only courses indicated on the evaluation will be certified for payment by V.A., as these are the courses that are needed to complete graduation or transfer requirements.

If you have not attended any other colleges or taken Math or English, Math/English Assessment must be completed prior to meeting with a LPC counselor for the Veteran Evaluation of Courses Appointment.
