We thank you for your service to our country. Now is our chance to serve you.

Veterans are a special group of students who come to us with their own skills, experience and background. We take pride in assisting our area veterans to enhance the skills they have or learn the new skills needed to completed a certificate and/or degree.

We know a Veteran needs and wants different types of services and programs, and we have an employee who works directly with Veterans. We also have a dedicated space, a Student Veteran’s Lounge, for them to rest and relax while on campus.
