Prescott College would like to thank our Veterans and Active Service Members for their service to our country. We hope that you enjoy your time at Prescott College and wish you best success in your educational goals. As part of this, we at Prescott College are putting together a team to become certified as an Arizona Veterans Supportive Campus.
Approved in late Spring 2011, Senate Bill 1373, section 41-609, established the certification criteria by which the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services (ADVS) can designate an institution as an Arizona Veterans Supportive Campus.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is launching an innovative new GI Bill® Comparison Tool designed to make it easier for Veterans to calculate their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits and learn more about colleges, universities and other education and training programs across the country. The GI Bill®Comparison Tool is designed to enable student Veterans and their families to compare education options and make informed choices that will help them reach their educational goals and find a good job. Please click here to access the tool directly.
Students who are eligible for veteran’s education benefits may use their benefits at Prescott College. The majority of our programs are approved for veteran’s education benefits.
Active duty veterans who qualify for benefits under the Post 9/11 GI Bill may transfer their benefits to their dependent spouse and children.
While using a GI Bill, course fees are not automatically billed to the VA for payment. The VA will only cover fees that are directly associated with tuition and attendance at the College. For instance: the technology fee, sustainability fee and activity fee. Once we confirm which courses fit into your degree requirements, we must review an itemization of the fees and remove anything related to camping park entrance fees, college vehicle use, transportation, housing and other miscellaneous items listed.
Prescott College certifies enrollment for students enrolled in the limited residency programs as distance learning students.
Prescott College has recently signed the Department of Defense (DoD) Voluntary Education Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
We encourage Veterans and Dependents to register with eBenefits at www.ebenefits.va.gov. EBenefits is a portal for Veterans and Dependents to obtain the most current information regarding their education benefits.
General information on VA benefits can also be obtained directly from the VA website or by calling (888) 442-4551.
WAVE (Web Automated Verification of Enrollment)

How do I use WAVE?

What Else Can I Do On WAVE?
You can find out the following:
- Has my request for benefits been processed?
Click on the Benefit Status Information to see if VA has updated your record to show your current enrollment. If you've received benefits in a previous term, your record will display on WAVE.
- Has my monthly verification "hit"?
You can see if your verification has been processed, including changes to your enrollment. Be sure to allow two business days for processing of "no-change" verifications. It's not a "real time" system. Changes to your enrollment will take longer.

You can use WAVE to submit your Direct Deposit Information. The information is sent to our Direct Deposit Center for Processing.

WAVE will email you a reminder to verify at the first of the month and again mid-month, if you still need to verify. WAVE can also send you your password if you forget it.
