The Veterans Coordinator at Rend Lake College is the liason between the college and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. This coordinator helps student veterans submit applications for military benefits and other financial aid, and officially certifies their enrollment to ensure they get timely payments.
The RLC Veteran Tuition Scholarship is for all Veterans or Service Members who no longer qualify, never qualified or have already used up their entire Federal/Illinois State VA Education Benefits.

The Veteran will apply for this scholarship with the FAO. The FAO may request additional information such as but not limited to proof of Veteran status, prior usage of VA Educational Benefits, Joint Services Transcript and current FAFSA.
