BEND, OR -- A three year battle between COCC and the federal VA has moved to a federal court. The V-A claims COCC has been given overpayments of $3,000,000 for veterans enrolled in the college’s Aviation Program. The Vice President for Student Affairs, Alicia Moore, says they have reached out to the Congressional delegation…have traveled to Washington D.C. for face-to-face meetings with V-A leadership…all to no avail. Moore says the V-A has applied legal standards that were written for trade schools, not colleges and has repeatedly ignored evidence presented by COCC. Moore says they have now asked a federal court in Eugene to order the VA to give the college the same appeal rights as allowed and required under VA regulations.
