Veteran Student Services

MF'18 Gold Military Friendly School [logo]

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

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

VSS has a team of interns who are fellow student veterans committed to providing the most useful and current information available to assist with transition. VSS maintains relationships with advising, tutoring, Office for Students with Disabilities, and other student support services to ensure that student veterans have a personal contact within these departments. VSS is the veterans and military one-stop shop for all VA or military information – through our commitment to building bridges with veteran and military resources in our community.
