Veterans Services

Oconee Fall Line Technical College is approved for the educational training of Veterans and certain eligible spouses and dependents of Veterans. The college serves only as a source of certification and information to the Veterans Administration as all financial transactions and eligibility determinations are handled directly between the student and the VA Office. Veterans and other eligible persons interested in obtaining educational benefits must meet all applicable requirements for admissions.

The Office of the Registrar serves as the Certifying Official to the Department of Veterans Affairs on behalf of Oconee Fall Line Technical College.  Veterans and the dependents of the Veterans who are eligible to receive benefits will work with the Veterans Certifying Official to:

  • Assist Veteran students with the processing of VA forms
  • Advise Veteran students, when appropriate, about certain procedural requirements
  • Certify enrollment of OFTC Veteran students to the Department of Veteran Affairs

For more information about Veteran benefits, please contact our VA Certifying Official:

OFTC Designated A Purple Heart Technical College

Oconee Fall Line Technical College is one of 22 Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) colleges who adopted a resolution honoring the Military Order of the Purple Heart and the United States service men and women. 

The mission of the Military Order of the Purple Heart is to foster an environment of goodwill among the combat wounded Veteran members and their families, promote patriotism, support legislative initiatives and, to never forget. 

Adopted on April 18, 2020, the resolution states that by supporting those who serve, TCSG’s system colleges will build stronger communities and a stronger workforce while providing a great atmosphere for learning and awareness across the state of Georgia. 

OFTC was one of 22 TCSG colleges designated a Purple Heart Technical College.
