These beneficiaries must comply with all admissions requirements of the Universidad Central del Caribe. Once admitted to the institution, the student must present the letter of benefits (Certificate of Eligibility) issued by the Veterans Administration. The Registrar’s Office will be responsible, upon student matriculation, to complete the certification of enrolment in the Veterans Administration system on the Internet.
