• Charlotte Tech Welcomes Our Veterans

    Our office will assist veterans, or the dependents of veterans, with the application process. If you are using benefits for the first time, you must file an application with the Department of Veterans Affairs.


    Many programs are approved for VA. Eligible veterans may be certified for VA benefits through the Financial Aid Office.

    The Bureau of State Approving Agency for Veteran Training has approved many of the certificate training programs offered at Charlotte Technical Center. All required application forms are available in the Financial Aid Office.

    Once the veteran has completed Charlotte Tech’s online application and taken the required test for the program of interest, the veteran will provide the following documentation to the Financial Aid Office:

    • A certified copy of his/her DD214
    • Government issued photo
    • Official Post-Secondary Transcripts (if applicable)
    • Official Military Transcripts - can be requested from jst.doded.mil
    • VA Certificate of Eligibility

    Once the forms have been received, the Financial Aid Office will forward the documentation to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) for processing. Upon the completion of the drop/add period, the enrollment certification is reported by the VA Certifying Official to the DVA for processing. It takes DVA a minimum of 4-8 weeks to activate benefits.
