East Central Community College is approved to submit enrollment certifications for students eligible for benefits and enrolled in programs approved by the Mississippi State Approving Agency.

We believe that our military service members, veteran students, and their family members deserve the opportunity to begin or continue their education in preparation for the next step in their careers. Individuals who are serving, have served, and their dependents in the U.S. military bring valuable perspectives to our campus and community, and we welcome applications for admission.

We strive to provide superior service and support to our Veterans and their dependents. Our office is able to assist Veteran students and qualifying dependents use their benefits to cover college expenses.
