Based on the input of public health professionals, our faculty leadership, and members of the Chancellor’s Executive Committee, It has determined that in the interest of safety, we are canceling the Spring 2020 Veterans Convocation and Phoenix College Commencement ceremonies planned for April and May 2020.
We know this is extremely disappointing. This was not an easy decision to make, but we must put health and safety first, adhering to the direction from Governor Ducey and the Arizona Department of Health.
We know that Commencement and Convocation celebrations are incredibly important milestones in the lives of our students, as is the opportunity to celebrate the success of our graduates with their families, friends and loved ones. While the ceremonies in May are canceled, we are exploring other options to bring together our graduates and their families in other venues when we can celebrate without health and safety concerns.

Maximize Your Education Benefits
Your enrollment process is the same as other students. But once you’ve applied for admission, please visit Veterans Services. You’ll need to complete a Veteran’s Request for Education Benefits form. It’s required for each semester you’re enrolled to use your VA benefits.
Our Veterans Services Office has been approved to certify eligible veterans and their dependents for educational benefits. More information about education benefits is available at www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
