Navarro College Veterans Services
Veterans and military families – welcome to Navarro College! Navarro began offering classes in September 1946. Most members of the first student body were returning Veterans from World War II looking to take advantage of assistance available under the newly enacted GI Bill of Rights. We continue to proudly serve Veteran students to this day. Navarro College is committed to helping you succeed as you transition from military to college life.
HOW TO BECOME A STUDENT AT NAVARRO COLLEGE
We can’t wait to have you on campus! The admissions process is the first and most important step for all prospective and incoming NC Students.
Students must take a state-approved placement test and submit test scores at the time of registration. Students otherwise qualified will not be refused admission on the basis of their scores. These results are used in advising and placing students in proper sections of certain course areas. Tests are given at each campus Testing Center by appointment. A photo ID is required and students must complete the Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA) prior to taking the TSI Assessment for the first time.
BACTERIAL MENINGITIS VACCINATION
All first-time students attending Navarro College, including transfer students as well as students who are not continuously enrolled in fall or spring semesters since Fall 2011, will be required to show evidence of vaccination against bacterial meningitis. Evidence of the student having received the vaccination from an appropriate health practitioner within the past five years must be received in the Navarro College Admissions and Records Office at least ten days prior to the student’s first day in class.
SUBMIT HIGH SCHOOL/COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS
Students need to submit official high school / college transcripts in person to the Office of Admissions and Records or send directly to:
Office of Admissions and Records
3200 W. 7th Avenue
Corsicana, TX 75110
All active duty, reserve, and Veteran students must submit any military transcripts awarded. You can request transcripts to be sent to Navarro College:

Contact your advisor and select the courses you want to take.

- VA benefits cannot be used for classes that you have already taken and passed with a letter grade of A, B, C, or D; unless, you are in your last semester before graduation.
- If you are taking developmental (or remedial) courses, you must take on-campus courses. Your VA benefits will not pay for online developmental courses.
- VA benefits will not pay for Physical Education courses for Veterans on A.A. or A.S. Degree Programs, unless you are pursuing a Kinesiology Degree, but credit for those courses can be gained by turning in an eligible DD214 to the Office of Admissions.
REQUEST FOR VA CERTIFICATION
Complete the Request for Certification Form online. The Request for Certification alerts the Navarro College Certifying Official that the student has registered and their schedule is finalized. Upon receipt of the request, the Certifying Official will evaluate the student’s schedule and submit all eligible classes to the VA for certification, thus ensuring that the VA begins payment for the semester at the appropriate time. The Request of Certification should be completed after your class schedule is finalized, but before classes begin, if at all possible. Requests will be processed in the order in which they are received.
PAY FOR CLASSES
Students can pay for classes at the Cashier’s Office or pay Navarro College tuition in full or in installments online with e-Cashier.
If you have Chapter 1606, 1607, 30 (without the Hazlewood Exemption), or 35 (without the Hazlewood Exemption), you will not receive any VA funding until the end of the first month of enrollment. Therefore, you MUST have financial aid or establish a payment plan with Navarro College to pay for classes before the payment deadline; otherwise, you will be dropped from your courses due to non-payment.
If you have Chapter 33 (Post-9/11 GI Bill), please ensure that you have turned in your Certificate of Eligibility and completed your Request for Certification at least 10 business days before the payment deadline so that you are not dropped from your courses for non-payment. These students will have a “Do not Drop” hold placed onto their student account to ensure the student is not dropped due to non-payment while Navarro College awaits payment of tuition and fees from the VA.
