There’s a reason why we have been designated a “military-friendly school” by G.I. Jobs magazine for multiple consecutive years. We value your military service and are here to support all veteran, service member, and dependent/spouse students.

The (VRC) is located on the Central Campus in Blue Bell behind Parkhouse Hall and next to the Fine Arts Center (FAC). The VRC provides services and assistance to veterans, service members, and spouse/dependents with their transition to college. Services include but are not limited to VA work study opportunities, Student Veteran Organization (SVO) meeting headquarters, Veteran Service Team (VST) meetings, a veteran lounge and computer area, assistance with VA educational benefits, VA educational certifying officials, general VA information, etc.

The Center invites campus and community resources to provide workshops, presentations and other outreach events to assist veteran students with their transition to collegiate life.
