Veterans Affairs

Veterans Affairs is responsible for certifying veterans and their dependents for V.A. educational benefits. It provides assistance, information, and resources to help veteran students take full advantage of their V.A. benefits under the G.I. Bill®. A knowledgeable and trained counselor will enroll students in courses that are required for them to complete their educational objectives; monitor students’ academic progress; and advise and counsel veteran students who need assistance. This person also serves as the liaison for the veteran student, his or her Education Services Officer (ESO), and the Veterans Administration's Regional Processing Office.

For more Information, contact Melvin Tinsley: (870) 633-4480, Ext. 304.
