William and Helen Scarpino Veterans Promise Program

The William and Helen Scarpino Veterans Promise Program

The Ventura College Foundation William and Helen Scarpino Veterans Promise Program is funded by donors who cover the costs of VC enrollment fees for the FIRST YEAR of U.S. veteran and U.S. active duty military students! This allows these students to reserve their GI Bill® for four-year University education.

How is it helpful?

  • Improves the college-going rate among veterans and active duty military in Ventura County
  • As the GI Bill® provides a maximum of 48 months of benefits, it allows veteran students to reserve their GI Bill® for four-year university education
  • Allows us to better assist active duty military to transition into civilian life

Eligibility

  • US Active Duty OR US Veteran (includes US National Guard)
  • First-year Ventura College Student
  • Honorably discharged (if US Veteran)
  • Not currently using GI Bill®

Application for 2018/2019 NOW OPEN!

Once these steps are complete you will be notified of your acceptance and you will notice that, upon registration for courses, your enrollment fees, student center fee, student health fee, and student rep fee have all been covered by the program.
