TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima Community College is reaching out to veterans to help them with veterans' education benefits.  This comes after a recent audit that showed violations in record keeping by the college.

Today PCC Downtown will host the second of two forums to help former and current students who attended PCC since the fall of 2010.  The forums are designed to answer questions and address concerns arising from a recent U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs audit of PCC.  This required a review of all veterans education benefit records at the college for the last four years.

The audit had found that PCC failed to properly report to the VA information about the changes in records to the vets.  At one point the college could not enroll new veteran benefit recipients, but this changed in May when they were reinstated. 

Today PCC staff members and community reps will discuss the ongoing certification review and impact on the veterans.  The college encourages those with concerns about his or her veterans' education benefit to attend. 

Also anyone who has received a debt letter from the VA should bring that letter with them, along with their most recent tax return to receive the best possible assistance.

The forum will be held at PCC Downtown (1255 N. Stone Ave. Tucson, 85709) from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
