Pima College may freeze veteran enrollment

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Pima Community College may have to halt enrollment for military veterans due to problems with its record-keeping systems.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs requested last week an examination of whether the college should continue serving veteran students.

VA officials say the most recent audit shows Pima Community College still is not complying with laws involving the use of tax dollars for veterans' education benefits.

The school assured officials it would correct the problem when 29 violations of rules were found last year in 50 student-veteran files.

According to Pima College, 1,500 veterans attend classes there every semester through VA programs.

The school could possibly be forced to put a freeze on enrolling veterans.
