Veterans Benefits

Oglala Lakota College is committed to ensuring the well-being of veteran students and veteran affairs by expertly maintaining all Veteran’s Benefits.

Oglala Lakota College welcomes veterans to build upon their educational foundation by investing their time in a degree program at Oglala Lakota College. Accommodative of a veteran’s varied needs ranging from education benefits and beyond, we’re here to ensure all students receive a quality education, backed by unparalleled opportunities to grow throughout one’s degree program and experiences.

Veterans who will be receiving education benefits will need to notify the Registrar's office by submitting a student enrollment certification request along with an application for VA Benefits to the VA , using VA Form 22-1990 for Ch.30 and Ch. 33 or VA Form 22-5490 for Ch. 35 (Survivor's & Dependents Educational Assistance) or apply online at for an electronic application that may be completed and submitted online.

Students can also call 1-888-GI-BILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) and request that a form be mailed to them or their respective college center counselor. Along with a copy of the application, Oglala Lakota College also requires a copy of the DD-214 on file.

Continuing students should notify the Registrar's Office for enrollment certification for each semester(s) they will be attending Oglala Lakota College along with the number of credit hours they will be taking. Only those courses that apply to their declared major shall be certified to the VA. Students who fail to maintain satisfactory progress in one semester will not be certified until they earn a grade point average of 2.00 (1.50 for students with 30 hours or less) in the continuing semester.

Advanced Payment

Veteran students will need to stop in at our office or call one month before classes begin.
