Veterans Resource Center
Veterans and Dependents,
Due to the changes in training modalities due to COVID-19, The Senate and House passed S.3503 and the bill will be headed to POTUS to sign, which will give the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) the authority to continue GI Bill payments uninterrupted in the event of national emergencies. The new law allows for VA to continue to pay benefits regardless of the fact that the program has changed from resident training to online training. Also, students will continue to receive the same monthly housing allowance payments that they received for resident training until January 1, 2021, or until the school resumes normal operations of resident training. The only adjustments that will be made to enrollments will be if a student drops or withdrawals from courses. Any updates will be posted to this website and/or will be sent to your RCCD email.
Norco College Veterans Veterans Resource Center will continue to offer online services. If you have any questions in regards to your certification, schedule an appointment with VA Educational Counselor, or inquiring about being a student at Norco College, please email
Eric Betancourt or call 951-529-8072.
Norco College welcomes all veterans, active duty military members, and VA dependants with varying educational goals to begin or continue their education. Whether you are refining your skills, seeking to transfer, planning to earn an Associate Degree, or completing an Occupational Certificate, we will do our best to assist you as you embark on an exciting educational journey at our institution.
Active duty service members and reservists are granted priority registration. Veterans are also eligible for priority registration for a period of four years when used within fifteen years after discharge from active duty. This allows those who qualify to be among the first student allowed to register for classes. Please bring your DD214 (Discharge Documents) or other qualifying paperwork to our office in order to determine your eligibility and get started.
If you are called to active duty after enrolling in classes at Norco College, you will be allowed to drop your course(s), receive MW (Military Withdrawal) status on your transcript. The notation of MW is not counted in calculating your overall grade point average(GPA).
Norco College fully adheres to the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 and California Assembly Bill 13.
