TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima Community College has scheduled two informational forums for students who have attended as recipients of Veterans Education Benefits since the Fall of 2010.

Current and former students with concerns about their Veterans Education Benefits are invited to attend to hear from PCC staff and community representatives about recent a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs audit of PCC and an ongoing certification review.

The audit identified PCC's failure to properly report information about records changes for the benefits recipients. In May, the Arizona Department of Veterans' Services reinstated PCC's authority to certify enrollment of new-to-PCC recipients.

"Pima Community College is committed to providing the best educational experience for our veterans and their families, as well as effective administration of their benefits," Chancellor Lee D. Lambert said in a news release.

The forums will be held:

  • Saturday, June 21, 9 a.m.-noon: PCC East Campus, 8181 E. Irvington Road, Community Room.
  • Monday, June 23, 5:30-9 p.m.: PCC Downtown Campus, 1255 N. Stone Ave., Amethyst Room (CC Building, Room 108)

Anyone who has received a Debt Letter from the VA is encouraged bring it, along with their most recent tax returns, to the forums in order to receive the best possible assistance.

For more information, call 206-4715 or email veterans@pima.edu.
