for Military & Dependents

Central Carolina Technical College has a long, proud history of providing high-quality, affordable education to military members and their families. Staff members are available at all CCTC locations to assist our military-affiliated students with making their academic goals a reality. Our classes are offered in a variety of formats to allow greater academic flexibility for unpredictable military schedules.

There are a number of financial aid resources available to military-affiliated students enrolled with CCTC, including the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) for eligible military spouses. Active Duty military and their family members are afforded in-state tuition status immediately upon completion of a military active duty verification or military dependent verification form.

Eligible Service members, veterans, and dependents must receive approval from an Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within the Military Service before applying and enrolling. Follow the appropriate guidelines to apply and for using your branch of service educational benefits and status.
