Access the Daytona State Veterans' Handbook Online
The Daytona State Veterans' Handbook may be downloaded from the link above or picked up in the VA Office on the Daytona Campus.
In every VA file is your Department of Veterans Affairs application for benefits that you complete upon your initial entry to Daytona State College and the VA Office. On this application, there is a box where you need to indicate yes or no to "Have you already received an information pamphlet explaining education benefits?" It also provides instructions regarding that question. Checking the box and signing your name, indicates you are responsible for reading and understanding the rules, regulations and polices related to veteran entitlements and benefits as outlined in the pamphlet. This pamphlet is sent by the Department of Veterans Affairs to all service personnel released from active duty.
