Thank you for choosing Berkeley City College (BCC) to pursue your education! Berkeley City College is committed to assisting Veterans, their dependents, and reservists in obtaining their VA educational benefits and in achieving their educational and career goals. BCC is approved to offer programs that lead to a certificate, an associate degree (for transfer), and transfer to a four-year college/university program.
To get started with our program, we recommend that you read through this webpage thoroughly and download the forms below to learn more about our programs. Also, please read our program brochure and outline of steps and ensure that you’ve completed all steps before meeting with the VA Counselor and/or the Certifying Official. In addition to applying for certification at BCC, you will need to apply with the Department of Veteran Affairs first in order to determine your educational benefits.

After receiving your eligibility letter from the Department of Veteran Affairs, you will then need to meet with our VA Counselor to determine your program of study and to review all of your documentation.
