Welcome, Military Service Members, Veterans and Families

Are you active duty, retired or a military dependent? Military service members and Veterans might have benefits to use toward 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, Buffalo, New York) and the North Carolina Department of Veterans Affairs in assisting Veterans and their dependents.
