Veterans Resource Center

Helping Veterans Transition from Military to Civilian Life


We understand that the reintegration from military to civilian life and the transition to college is often challenging. We stand ready to support you and your family in your journey from boots to books.

Our purpose is to help you connect with the many resources available to you and your family, provide a safe and comfortable place for you to meet other veteran students, assist you in navigating through the many processes required to start school, and help you access your educational benefits and other financial resources.

Visit our Resource Center on the second floor of Lynnwood Hall, room 215. Stop in for a cup of coffee or a snack, use our computers to check email, or do your homework. Meet with the Veteran Students Association. Or just stop by for a visit or a quiet place to read or study.

Click on links to the left to access specific information regarding educational benefits, campus and off campus resources, and veteran student association information.

EdMail: You are required to use it! It is the way we communicate with you.

The college assigns all students EdMail (email) accounts within a couple of days after you register for your first class. Note: if you are a former student returning after time away from school, check with the Enrollment Services Office to confirm what email address we have on file for you. Financial aid will use the address recorded in the Enrollment Services records.
