Welcome U.S. Veterans, Service Members, Spouses, and Dependents!

Jefferson State Community College is committed to providing veterans with a successful educational experience.  We are so grateful for your service and are honored to serve those who have served.  Veterans, national guard/reservists, and dependents/survivors are eligible for VA education benefits.  Please review the links on this page for information on the certification process to receive your VA benefits while attending Jefferson State Community College.

If you have any questions about applying for VA education benefits, please contact the Jefferson State VA Coordinator at (205) 856-7951 or va@jeffersonstate.edu.


In our continued effort to provide outstanding service during the campus closures due to the COVID-19 situation, the Jefferson State Office of Veterans Affairs is available to assist you via phone, and we have also provided you an option to meet virtually face to face using Microsoft Teams.

To use Microsoft Teams, you will need to log into your Jefferson State Office 365 email and select “Teams” from the menu found in the upper left-hand corner. To set up a Teams meeting with the Veterans Affairs Coordinator, please email rmcobb@jeffersonstate.edu to set up a virtual meeting with Rose Marie Cobb. Otherwise, you may call her directly via Google Voice at (205) 291-1303.

Hours of availability are from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. Messages received after 4:00 pm or on weekends will be returned the next business day.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. We look forward to working with you as you continue to pursue your educational goals.


Students should contact the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) to determine what benefits they may be eligible to receive. You can determine the status of your award or inquire about problems receiving your benefits by contacting the DVA at 1-888-442-4551 or at www.gibill.va.gov.
