Veterans & Military Benefits
The North Carolina State Approving Agency
The North Carolina State Approving Agency (NC SAA) for Veterans and Military Education is a self-governing state agency funded by a federal contract and affiliated with the North Carolina Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (NCDMVA) acting as Trustee. The NC SAA approves educational courses and programs available to veterans and eligible persons. The NC SAA audits each educational institution to verify that the guidelines established by the NC SAA and Veterans Affairs are being followed. Each educational institution is required to be compliant with state and federal guidelines. The NC SAA ensures that veterans entering into an institution of higher learning are being treated fairly as non-veteran students.
