Roxbury Community is committed to assisting our U.S. military veterans, reservists, guardsmen, and active duty personnel with navigating the educational process so that they can achieve their educational and professional goals. We have created a veteran friendly environment that encourages veterans and their families to further their education and transition to college.
Before coming to Roxbury Community College please visit www.gibill.va.gov or contact the VA representative (V.A. Buffalo: 888-442-4551) in order to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility.
A "Certificate of Eligibility" is required for processing GI Bill applications. A "DD 214" is also required. Please visit http://gibill.va.gov/benefits/post_911_gibill/index.html for information concerning the Post 9/11 GI Bill.
