Veterans Benefits

Active duty, retired or military dependent? You might have benefits that you can use towards your classes at College of The Albemarle (COA). We can help you identify your educational benefits and explain how to apply and use them.

COA cooperates with the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA Regional Processing Office, Decatur, Georgia) and the North Carolina Department of Veterans Affairs in assisting veterans and their dependents.
