VetSuccess On Campus

TCC Veterans and Military Services and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have joined together in VetSuccess on Campus, which is a collaborative effort to assist Veteran-students in making a smooth transition to college life with a view to academic and vocational success. 

Working with Vet Centers

TCC and the VA are also working together with Vet Center personnel. Services are targeted toward adjustment needs of Veterans. 

Services may include:

  • Professional counseling
  • Community education
  • Outreach
  • Linking veterans to other community agencies

VetSuccess Counselors

TCC will house two VA VetSuccess Counselors on its campuses beginning Summer, 2012.

If you are a Veteran, active duty military or an eligible family member who attends or plans to attend TCC, please call or come by to meet with a Vet Success on Campus Counselor.

  • Manage your education benefits
  • Explore vocations and select a suitable major / career
  • Elect your healthcare benefits with Veterans Healthcare Administration
