Shoreline Community College has a long history of educating veterans, active duty military, and military dependent students. We are honored to continue this valuable tradition as a new generation serves and returns to higher education. We are committed to ensuring your academic success and value your addition to the Shoreline Community College campus.
Getting started is a multi-step process at Shoreline. As a student veteran, you have multiple applications to complete. These can be done concurrently. You are advised to start your financial aid application as early as possible due to lengthy processing times.
» Be sure to mark Veteran on your application
» The application takes 3-5 days to process. Once processed, you will receive an email containing your Student ID number.
Note: Applying for Financial Aid does not guarantee any award nor does it necessarily mean that you are taking on Student Loans. There are grants and other sources of funding that may be available to you. Financial Aid is meant to be used in conjunction with your GI Bill.
» DD 214 Certificate of Release from Active Duty or a Military I.D.
» Certificate of Eligibility from the VA
» Official or unofficial college and/or military transcripts
Items you must turn in to the Veterans Program Office are:
» A copy of your class schedule (EVERY quarter)
» A Student Responsibility Form (one time only or if you change your degree plan or VA Benefit Chapter)
» A SIGNED Veterans Academic Plan (one time only or if you change your degree plan)
**Failure to submit these items will result in you being dropped from your classes for NON PAYMENT.
**You cannot be certified for your benefits until you have turned in the required documents listed above.
