VetSuccess on Campus

TCC Veterans and Military Services and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have joined together for VetSuccess on Campus, a collaborative effort to help you make a smooth transition to college life and have academic and vocational success.

If you are a veteran, active duty military or an eligible family member who attends or plans to attend TCC, call or come by to meet with a VA VetSuccess on-campus counselor.

Contact your campus's Veterans Services for additional help.
