Yes. Large numbers of veterans choose community colleges to pursue further training and education after leaving military service.

Most community college counselors are familiar with veterans' concerns and options. Please visit the counseling office at your local college for more information.

In addition to counseling, community colleges, through their admissions offices, provide information and assistance with G.I. Bill benefits and the Veterans Educational Assistance Program.

Note: The California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office (CCCCO), the Faculty Association for California Community Colleges (FACCC) and the Foundation for California Community Colleges (FCCC) one day conference on serving student veterans was a tremendous success! Links to future conferences and program materials can be found on the FACCC website.
