OCC is fortunate to have a designated counselor for our veteran students and families who has a thorough understanding of the academic progress needed to fulfill your certificate or degree requirements, in addition to the impact that your course selection will have on your benefits. All students who are utilizing G.I. Bill Education benefits are required to meet with this counselor for any changes to their Student Education Plans. While veteran students who are not utilizing benefits are not required to meet with our veteran counselor, they are welcome to take advantage of this services.
