2. Financial Aid Besides military Tuition Assistance (TA), you may be eligible for additional financial aid to defray some of the costs that are not covered by TA, such as textbooks. Getting help is easier than you think. The key is to get your paperwork in early. All it takes to apply for financial aid, including grants, loans, scholarships and student staff programs, is a single application form. The earlier you get your application in, the better your chances to be considered for all available sources of financial assistance. Get started today by connecting to our Financial Aid website. For more information, contact a Financial Aid Advisor at 719.502.3000 or 1.866.411.7722.
3. Placement Testing This is the one test everybody aces. It's a quick evaluation of your basic skills in reading, English and math that helps your advisor, and you, know where your college education should start. If you have ACT or SAT scores, or if you have taken college classes before, you may not need a placement test. But to be on the safe side, contact the Military Programs advisor at 719.502.4100, 1.888.645.7764. We offer placement testing at the military education centers as well as on campus, for hours of operation, please give us a call or check out our site locations pages at www.ppcc.edu/military.
4. In-State Residency
Active duty service members and their family members who are not Colorado residents must pick up a Green Form (Tuition Classification Certification Form) from their servicing military education center. Bring the completed form to the PPCC Military Programs office located at the military education center. Submission of a Green Form is required in order to receive Colorado in-state tuition. Green Forms must be submitted to PPCC every semester/term prior to the published drop (or census) date of the semester/term in which you are enrolled. If you do not have a Green Form on file at PPCC, you will be charged the out-of-state tuition rate. Service members who are TDY or deployed from a Colorado military installation should send an email to email@example.com for Green Form submission instructions. All students who
submit a Green Form prior to the census (drop) date of the term will not be dropped for non-payment.
Veterans and their family members who are not Colorado residents may qualify for one year of in-state residency after separation. If you have a Colorado driver’s license, the State of Colorado has put legislation in place that grants Honorably Discharged veterans and their family members one year of in-state tuition after separation from service. To obtain an application form, contact us at 719.502.2060, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by our offices on Centennial Campus in room A229.
5. Apply for the College Opportunity Fund Active duty service members, veterans, and their family members residing in Colorado must apply for the College Opportunity Fund (COF). If you do not have a Colorado driver’s license or if you have had your Colorado driver’s license for less than one year, please visit the PPCC Military Programs office located at your military education center to complete a paper copy of the COF application. If you have had your Colorado driver’s license longer than one year, you may complete and submit the COF application form online at www.ppcc.edu. Service members who are TDY or deployed from a Colorado military installation should send an email to email@example.com for COF form submission instructions.
6. Advising We can help you figure out your education and career goals, map them to the PPCC academic plan that fits you best, and help you choose your classes. Contact our military and veteran advisors to set up an appointment by calling 719.502.4100 or toll-free 1.888.645.7764, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for active duty and their family members or email@example.com for veterans and their family members. If you have credits you will be transferring to PPCC, or if you have military experience that you would like evaluated for credit towards your degree, just download a Transcript Request Form, fill it out, and send it to your prior college(s). Once you have completed six credit hours at PPCC, you may contact Rich Rayborn, our SOC/Credit for Prior Learning Evaluator, who will evaluate your military work experience, complete your Student Agreement and get you on your way to degree completion.

Additional Information Concerning VA Tuition Payment: In order to efficiently process your VA paperwork, our VA office will submit your class schedule with zero tuition and fees. This is to ensure that beneficiaries who qualify for BAH or monthly payments (depending on chapter) will receive them in a timely manner. Once the drop period has ended, your schedule will be submitted to the federal VA benefits processing office complete with tuition and fees and the VA will determine, based on chapter, how tuition and fees will be paid. Please check with us if you have any questions. Additionally, you may receive a bill in the US mail from PPCC once the drop period has passed. In most cases you can simply ignore the bill, but if you have questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call or stop by our office.
