Seminole State College of Florida Veterans: Office of Veteran Student Services

The VA has agreed to pay in resident housing for classes solely converted to online because of COVID-19. Not all online courses will fall under this protection.

If you change your schedule in any way, (i.e. drop or add courses), that could affect your benefits and result in a debt letter from the VA. If you make any schedule changes please let us know as soon as possible by emailing vabenefits@seminolestate.edu, and if you drop or withdraw from any courses due to mitigating circumstances surrounding COVID-19.

Please reach out to us via e-mail at vabenefits@seminolestate.edu with any questions and concerns. We will be available during regular office hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Welcome to Seminole State College's Office of Veteran Student Services. Our goal is to serve as a one-stop source for securing, interpreting and exercising your VA education benefits. Whether you postponed starting college or interrupted your studies to serve our country, we are grateful for your sacrifices and committed to your academic success.
