Charlotte Christian Supports Our Veterans
We at Charlotte Christian College and Theological Seminary (CCCTS) recognize the needs of our veterans who have served in our nation’s armed forces. The level of commitment that comes with the willingness to pay the ultimate sacrifice is a concept that we as Christian’s can value deeply. As such, CCCTS is committed to working with our veterans, current enlisted personnel, and their dependents. We are ready to serve you in your education needs and to take the next step on that journey!
Charlotte Christian Is A Great Option For Veterans
Flexible Learning Options
The life of the military demands even more flexibility that normal. We understand frequent deployments and relocations can make it difficult to pursue your educational goals. As such, CCCTS offers day, evening, and online classes that can be blended to create a customized experience that meets your needs. CCCTS is proud to support you in your pursuit of a flexible and affordable online education degree. All of our degrees can be earned completely online.
Whether you are Active Duty, a Reservist, National Guard, any military branch, retired veterans, or a military spouse, you have the opportunity to qualify for benefits and pursue your education goals. We are committed to helping you every step of the way!
Freedom to Fulfill Your Military Obligations
Your commitment to serve should not negatively affect your academic progress at CCCTS. We recognize the chance of being called to active duty. You may need to miss class because of a military drill. We will review your situation and assure you may be eligible for accommodations should your military obligations interfere with class.
Steps to Enrollment for Veterans
1. Fill out and submit your application
2. Fill out the FAFSA
Use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine your ability to receive aid. All veterans and their dependents should complete the FAFSA each year, regardless of the military benefits they will be receiving.
In addition, you’ll need to provide transcripts from previous schools and/or military service to our registrar’s office in order to receive a proper transfer credit evaluation.
3. Determine Veterans Education Funding and Benefits
NOTE: You can complete the application process to the Department of Veterans Affairs while you are completing the admission and enrollment process at the College.
- To determine your eligibility for benefits and to apply for Veterans Education Benefits contact the VA: toll free at 1-888-442-4551 or visit www.gibill.va.gov
- If you have applied for Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA), provide a copy of your approved FTA document to us as soon as you receive it. FTA is considered federal funding and must be considered when determining the actual net cost for Chapter 33 benefits.
- If you are receiving National Guard Education Assistance Program (EAP) funds, notify us each term/semester you receive an award. The Department of Veterans Affairs makes the determination to benefit eligibility.
4. Enrollment Certification
- Notify us when you have completed the application process and are registered for classes. We cannot certify your enrollment to the VA until you have been accepted to CCCTS and have registered for classes. You may register only for classes that apply to your degree/certificate program in accordance with the College’s catalog.
- Once you receive a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) or a Benefits Award Letter from the VA, provide a copy to us immediately. You do not need the COE to register for classes, however, we do not need the COE to certify your enrollment.
- After you have received your benefits award letter, verify your enrollment monthly on W.A.V.E. on the last of the day of each month. (Not required for Chapters 33 and 35)

Changes in a Veteran’s Enrollment Status
Notify CCCTS of ALL changes in your enrollment status so that it can be reported to the VA. Please be aware that if you drop or withdraw from classes before the end of a term/semester, you may be in over-payment status and VA may require you to pay back tuition, fees, monthly housing allowance funds that you received prorated for the period you did not complete classes. VA will determine the overpayment, not the school’s certifying official. Student debt will be owed to the VA. Students must comply ASAP with the instructions in any debt letter they receive.
