CLC welcomes veterans, military service members and their families. Veteran Student Services (VSS) provides comprehensive resources, serving as a single point of contact for veterans, military students and their families (military members) attending or planning to attend CLC. We can assist you with:

  • Applying to the college
  • Applying for and using federal and state benefits
  • Basic/general non-academic college advice

VSS is a team of VA Educational Benefits experts composed of veterans who have already obtained a degree or are in the process of obtaining a degree, as well as a former military dependents dedicated to helping you understand your benefits. Our personnel have already gone through most, if not all, of the processes required to obtain and use military benefits. We are always willing to meet with military members to answer any higher education questions.
