If you are interested in taking courses at Parkside and transferring those credits back to the college or university where they are pursuing their degree or other educational goal, then you are a considered a guest.

What do I need to do to use my Federal or State benefits?

You should follow the same steps as outlined for a new Parkside student who wishes to receive either Federal or State Veterans Benefits.  Please click on the benefit(s) below for specific instructions of what paperwork is required. 

If you plan on using Federal VA Benefits you must also submit a
Parent School Letter.

A student may take courses at more than one school that apply to his or her degree. The school that will grant the degree is the student's "parent" school. All other schools are "secondary" schools. VA can pay benefits for courses taken at secondary schools. If the student is only enrolled at the secondary school (supplemental enrollment), VA will pay for the credits taken at the secondary school. If the student is enrolled at the primary school and the secondary school at the same time (concurrent enrollment), VA will pay for the combined credit, taking overlapping enrollment dates into account. 

The Parent School Letter gives the receiving school assurance that the class, if successfully completed, will apply appropriately to the student's academic program.
