How to File for Education Benefits

Requirements for Filing

Applicants must be admitted and enrolled at LATTC.


Filing Procedures

All forms for first-time applicants, continuing students, and transfer students can be obtained online at

Students who wish to receive educational assistance must complete an Application for Semester Entitlement (ASE) form each semester. The Veterans' Student Center will not certify students without a recent request on file.

Processing applications takes the Veterans Administration approximately 6 to 8 weeks. This means, after your paperwork has been submitted from the LATTC Students' Center to the Veterans Administration, you can expect a check for the current enrollment to arrive at the location designated in the address section of the ASE form 6 to 8 weeks later. Thereafter, checks will arrive at the beginning of each month for the previous month. Questions concerning payment after you have been certified should be directed to the Veterans Administration at 1-800-827-1000.
