Veteran Student Resources
Veteran students who wish to be assured that the college options they
are considering are approved for veteran benefits can rely on the work of the
Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC). The HECC is the State
Approving Agency (SAA) for Veterans Education Programs, and is responsible for
granting the necessary approval needed for the Department of Veteran Affairs to
pay veterans and other eligible persons their G.I Bill education benefits.
Eligible for Veteran Benefits
The State Approving Agency (SAA) approves and supervises postsecondary
institutions that are legally operating in Oregon, including public and private
colleges, universities, community colleges, high schools, flight schools, private career schools, and apprentice and on-the-job training programs.
