Information for Veterans

Welcome Veterans! My name is Juana Rangel-Escobedo, and I am the VA Certifying Official for Taft College. I am located in the Administration & Student Services building next to the Library.

Please feel free to contact me at 661-763-7898, by fax at 661-763-7758, or by email at

Taft College is an approved institution of higher learning and training facility for veterans applying for V.A. benefits. As a certifying official, I provide services to veterans and dependents of veterans who are eligible for the Montgomery GI Bill. These services include certification of enrollment for educational benefits, and development of an educational plan.

Please familiarize yourself with the information links at the top. I hope that this website will provide you with all of the information you need to start receiving your VA education benefits.

I look forward to serving you at Taft College.
