The Veterans Resource Center was created to help incoming Veteran students transition from soldiers to scholars.  In addition, Veterans, Active Duty, Reservists, and their dependents are assisted with accessing their VA education benefits when pursuing an eligible AA/AS, Certificate, or Transfer Program for a BA/BS. The VRC also can direct students to campus resources that would help them succeed in their educational goals.
