Veteran Certification

The Registrar’s Office is responsible for processing Veteran Student Enrollment Certifications each semester after the drop/add period has ended. It is the responsibility of students eligible for veterans benefits to contact the Certification Coordinator in the Registrar’s Office to request enrollment certification or to report a change in enrollment.

Please note that the Certification Coordinator at Connecticut College is not an employee of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and cannot answer questions regarding eligibility of benefits. If you have questions regarding benefits, please contact a Veterans Administration Education Benefits Counselor at 888-GI-BILL.

To request enrollment certification or to report an enrollment change (for example, a change in major or number of credits enrolled, or the intent to Study Away or be on a Leave of Absence the following semester), please email Beth Rezendes, erezende@conncoll.edu, Associate Registrar for Operations.
