Veterans Educational Benefits

Most programs offered by Clover Park Technical College (CPTC) are fully approved for benefits under the following Veterans Administration regulations:

Selected programs of study at Clover Park Technical College are approved by the Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board’s State Approving Agency (WTECB/SAA) for enrollment of those eligible to receive benefits under Title 38 and Title 10, USC.

Clover Park Technical College does not and will not provide any commission, bonus, or other incentive payment based directly or indirectly on success in securing enrollment or financial aid to any persons or entities engaged in any student recruiting or admissions activities or in making decisions regarding the award of student financial assistance.

Schools should limit student enrollment to 85% veteran enrollment per cohort. In the event that a veteran wishes to enroll in a class that has already reached the 85% cap, he or she may do that but will not be eligible for VA funding. Chapter 35 and 31 students may still enroll even if the 85 percent has been realized.

For questions about eligibility, call the VA at 1-888-442-4551. For veterans services, you can visit www.gibill.va.gov. Currently enrolled VA students may report their monthly attendance by calling 1-877-823-2378. Contact the CPTC Veteran's School Certifying Official (SCO) at 253-589-5581 or email vaoffice@cptc.edu.
