VA - VetSuccess on Campus ~ Austin Community College

 

The VetSuccess on Campus program is a collaborative effort between Austin Community College · (ACC) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) with the purpose of providing a supportive, on-campus environment where student Veterans may gather to obtain assistance and peer support. The program assists student Veterans in making a smooth transition to college life and successfully completing their educational programs.

The VA has placed a full-time, experienced vocational counselor at ACC. This counselor can serve as a "one-stop liaison" for Veterans, active duty military, and their eligible family members who attend or plan to attend ACC.

  • Information on VA education benefits to include the Montgomery G.I. Bill (Chapter 30), Post 9/11. G.I Bill (Chapter 33), and other VA and non-VA educational benefits
