VA File # _________________________________
I understand and acknowledge that being a student in receipt of veterans’ educational benefits gives me some additional
responsibilities and duties while pursuing my educational objective. In particular:
____The MyClackamas email account is the primary method the college and the Veteran Services Office (VSO) will use for
communications and I will check it regularly and reply as requested and required.
____I will obtain official grade transcripts from all colleges and other postsecondary schools that I have attended. Official transcripts
must be received by the CCC Records Office prior to the end of my first term in attendance. Send transcripts to: Records Office,
Clackamas Community College, 19600 Molalla Ave, Oregon City, OR 97045
____I must submit a “Veterans Request for Certification” form to the VSO each term I intend to utilize VA benefits. In addition, I
must immediately report to the VSO any and all changes in my enrollment status and any changes to my declared degree.
____All classes I take must apply directly toward my declared degree objective. If I choose to take a class that does not apply to my
degree objective or if I drop a class for which the VA has provided educational benefits, I am solely responsible for any
overpayment amount to be repaid to the VA.
____I must consistently meet the CCC Standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SSAP) which includes maintaining a
cumulative minimum GPA of 2.0 and a course completion rate of 67% of all attempted courses per academic term. The full standards

Probation, or Academic Suspension in accordance with College policy. If I am placed on Academic Suspension, my Veterans
Education benefits will also be suspended.
____I understand that Veterans Education Benefits will not pay for: self-paced classes, auditing classes, repeating classes which have
been successfully completed and classes in which I receive a final grade of: N, W, X, or Y. I understand that these grades may
result in an overpayment.

____I understand that the VSO will retain records pertaining to my education and use of Veterans Education Benefits in paper and
electronic form in accordance with the regulations of the Veterans Administration. I authorize the staff of the VSO to use this
information, including but not limited to class registration, changes in enrollment and final grades, in the normal course of certifying
my eligibility for education benefits and as requested by authorized representatives of the Veterans Administration to ensure
compliance with applicable law and regulations. I am responsible for contacting the VA and/or the VSO with questions pertaining to
