Attention: Due to a complete software changeover by the VA, we will not be able to submit any certifications to the VA from February 24th, 2023 to March 6th, 2023.

What to do: Submit your Spring 2023 enrollment certification request ASAP so it has a better chance of being processed before the February 24th, 2023 software closure. You are able to submit your Certification Request via your mySMCCD Student Portal > Student Success Link > Veteran Forms.
