Community College Veteran students have the option to cross-enroll in Vanguard University’s School for Professional Studies (SPS) program. Cross-enrolling allows students the opportunity to add General Education courses during gap periods at the Community College to minimize a reduction in BAH pay during these gaps.
What do I need to do?
Know what General Education or Elective courses you need to fulfill Transfer or AA requirements from your Community College. Schedule an appointment with the Academic and/or Veterans Counselor for assistance.
Complete the SPS application. The application fee is waived for Community College Veteran Students.
- On the application, please select Student at Large in the drop down box for ‘Program of Study’.
- Remember to mark Veteran status on the application.
An Education Counselor will contact you to discuss course availability and schedule an admission’s appointment to enroll.
The appointment will include a meeting with VU’s Certifying Official to submit necessary paperwork. Students are responsible for course approval at their Community College. Course descriptions may be found at sps.vanguard.edu/general-education.
- Items to bring to the appointment include:
- Required Course Information.
- Certificate of Eligibility
- DD.214 (Discharge Papers).
Take your approved SPS course information to the Community College Certifying Official and request a Parent School Letter. Your Community College College should be listed as Primary, Vanguard University Secondary.
