Attention current students using GI Bill® benefits: 

As of January 1st, 2022, the VA requires all veteran students using post 9/11 benefits to check in with the VA once a month to confirm continued attendance. To check in with the VA please call 1-888-442-4551. You can call to check in over the phone or through the listed number set up your profile to allow you to text in.  Failure to check in with the VA 2 months in a row will lead the VA to suspend you benefits.
 
 

On December 21, 2021, President Biden signed the Responsible Education Mitigating Options and Technical Extensions Act or the REMOTE Act into law 

Section two of this law extends the various COVID-19 protections for GI Bill® students from December 21, 2021, to June 1, 2022. In part, this means that students who were attending a course that was converted to online training because of COVID-19, and were getting paid the resident rate, may continue to train online, and will continue to receive the resident housing rate until June 1, 2022.

To view the list of classes that were converted to online and will be certified as resident courses, click on the link below.

  • Spring 2022 Courses Converted to Online (Coming Soon)

Thank you for your service!
You Served Us, Now Let Us Serve You!

Mission:

The Moorpark College Veterans Resource Center (VRC) provides support services focused on the special needs and requirements of today's military veterans, active duty service members, and dependents.  We assist students in transitioning to the college environment and in achieving their academic and personal development goals.

Veteran Educational Benefits:

Moorpark College recognizes the sacrifice of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. If you are a veteran or dependent of a veteran, you may be eligible for veterans' educational benefits to help you achieve your education goals! Veteran services are available to support your educational goals as you make use of your GI Bill® educational benefits. We can provide assistance as you complete the necessary paperwork to ensure you receive the proper entitlement pay and guide you toward a variety of campus resources ranging from tutoring to career and personal counseling.  Students are not required to use their GI Bill® to utilize the VRC.

Services Include:

  • GI Bill® Enrollment Certifications - fee reimbursement, housing allowance (if applicable), & pre-enrollment guidance
  • Priority registration for veterans (even if you are not using your educational benefits)
  • Individualized, 30 minute counseling appointments to assist in developing your educational plan
