The Veteran’s Resource Center (VRC) focuses on providing an excellent atmosphere and network for the success of student veterans. Service members and their dependents are welcomed, as well. VRC staff members work to help explain the various rights and benefits that prior service members have earned for themselves and their families.
Services We Offer
Veteran’s Resource Center (VRC)
Students can utilize the VRC’s Lending Library system to access books needed for class studies and homework. Desktop and laptop computers are also available for the general use of students, from working on schoolwork and research to checking emails and other VA resources. Students can also come in and relax between classes or talk with VRC staff and other students.
Information guidebooks and brochures on veteran-oriented services, from education to medical care, can be found at the VRC. The VRC also works with the Veterans Integration to Academic Leadership (VITAL) program, which can help student veterans with enrolling in VA healthcare, memory issues, student veteran advocacy, PTSD, and more. For scheduling to see a VITAL counselor, contact Scot Parry.
Students wishing to apply to the Veteran Affairs (VA) for money to attend school must first determine which category or chapter they fall under and then they can follow the appropriate checklist. Information regarding which category or chapter a VA student falls under may be obtained from the Veterans Affairs Regional Office.

Also, there is additional funding for service members and their spouses offered through their individual units and by the Department of Defense.
