Application Process:

  1. Submit an Application
    1. Apply for admission here, at no cost using the following code: MILFREE.

  2. Using Benefits
    1. First-time Use: If you plan to use your educational benefits for the first time and haven’t received a Certificate of Eligibility (COE), you’ll need to apply for your benefits here. You’ll also need to begin an application on vets.gov  as a new user and complete VA Form 22-1990. Make sure you have your DD214 and banking information ready, because the application asks that you provide it.  
    2. Previous Use: If you’ve already used your benefits before, please submit a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to our VA Certifying Official, Barb Ellmaker.

  3. Requesting Official Transcripts
    1. It’s a requirement to submit official transcripts from all previous institutions you’ve attended. This includes completed transcripts from DSST & CLEP tests.

  4. Military Transcripts
    1. The Joint Services Transcript (JST) has replaced the following:
      1. Coast Guard Institute Transcript (CGI)
      2. Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript System (AARTS)
      3. Sailor/Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript (SMART)
    2. To order your official transcript from JST, set up an account here. Print out an unofficial copy for your admissions counselor, and order an official copy to be sent to the Mequon Campus (it will be received by the VA Certifying Official office within 48 hours).
    3. Air Force personnel should contact the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) to receive transcripts.

  5. Admission Package Completion
    1. Once all of your admissions package paperwork is completed, a decision will be made, and we’ll notify you of your status.
    2. If you’ve been accepted, all your college and military transcripts will be evaluated to see which credits will transfer into your course of study. Then, it’s time for class registration!
