The Veterans Service Office (VSO) was created to assist veteran students as they transition from military life to student life. Veterans, Active Duty, Reservists, and their dependents/spouses are provided access to their VA education benefits to assist them with successfully meeting their educational goals.
To help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19, SCC has suspended all in-person and on-campus convening of classes and student support services. In accordance with state guidelines, the VSO will not be providing on campus or in-person support at this time. Please check back on our website for updates.
This is the first step in the transition to alternative delivery methods (online and virtual), which will begin on Wednesday, March 18th. Check your email as you will receive course-specific plans and information from the colleges and your instructors in the coming days. Should you have any questions, please contact your instructor.
How does this affect VA benefits?
Due to the suspension period and transition to online and virtual instruction currently impacting multiple schools, the VA will be providing guidance to both students and staff on Thursday, March 26th. As of this moment, no changes have been made to any certifications at SCC.
