EFSC Veterans Educational Benefits
The Eastern Florida State College Military & Veterans Service Center is proud to serve those who serve our country. The Center facilitates veterans’ access to government benefits to help them reach their educational goals.
We want to provide timely and accurate service for all veterans and eligible dependents who attend EFSC.
Veterans and other eligible persons planning to enroll under the G.I. Bill should contact EFSC's veterans educational benefits experts at the earliest opportunity once they have been admitted to EFSC and get registered for classes.
Benefit applications and instructions for completing the VA Educational Benefit package will be provided during the initial visit to one of the locations listed on this page. Completed applications and supporting documents will be accepted from students only after class registration has been completed.
As a fully accredited institution of higher education, EFSC has the approval of the Florida State Approving Agency for Veterans Training to certify enrollment of qualified veteran students. The EFSC Registrar's Office also can evaluate prior military experience for potential College credit.
Be sure to explore the steps outlined under the “How to Apply” link so you can take care of any steps in the process that you can handle before you’re officially admitted to EFSC.
For resources & veterans educational benefits assistance EFSC students from any campus
can call, email or visit a service center for assistance. As of June 1, walk-in visits
are available or you can call or email to make an appointment.
