Prior to the beginning of each semester, you must submit a VA Education Benefits Certification Request and Statement of Obligation Form.
This Course Certification Form is used to certify your eligibility for benefits. Only courses listed on your educational plan may be certified. Do not wait to certify once you are enrolled in your classes, because VA way take up to 6-8 weeks before processing for payments.
You can only request certification for classes currently enrolled in, not classes that you are going to add soon or are waitlisted in.
Complete the Certification (fillable form) online; using Adobe Acrobat, you should be able to enter an electronic signature. A copy of your form will be sent to your email. Please forward the completed form via email to Evelyn Andrews, Veterans Specialist, email: email@example.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep your personal contact information updated with the LPC Veterans office to ensure you receive all pertinent information regarding your educational benefits.
In order to receive an extension of fees/tuition, please request for certification of classes early (before drop dates of non-payments) or request that an extension is added to your record at the Veterans Resource Center.

Frequently Asked Questions
- If I make a change to my schedule, such as adding or dropping a class before the term
begins, do I need to submit a new form?
A: Yes. Each time you make a change, the Dept of VA must be notified to ensure that the educational benefits you received are accurate.
- What does it mean when the course is offered at Chabot College? Will LPC certify courses
that I register for at Chabot College?
A: No. The Veterans Specialist will send a Parent letter to Chabot College confirming that the course registered for at Chabot College is on your Educational Plan. The Veterans Center at Chabot College will certify your course as a “guest” student.
- What if I made an error on my schedule, for example, entered the wrong start/end dates
for a course or entered the wrong units, will I need to re-submit the form?
A: No. The Veterans Specialist will verify the data before it is submitted to the Dept of VA. If there are any discrepancies on the form, the Veterans Specialist will contact you before it is submitted to the Dept of VA.
- If I need help completing the Form, will someone help me?
A: Yes, simply visit the Virtual Reception Desk via Zoom. Information is available on the Veterans First website.
- If I am having technical issues with completing the form, can I download the form,
hand write the information, scan, and email it?
