Welcome and Thank You for Your Service!

The Veterans’ Services Office was established to provide resources, support, and advocacy to veterans, active military personnel, and their families. Our staff is committed to offering quality assistance and guidance throughout your educational journey here at Southwestern College. 

Our Veterans Services Team consists of the Veterans' Services Office, the Veterans' Resource Center and our Veterans' Counselor. These skilled and committed team members (many of whom are veterans and/or dependents) are here to assist you at each step of the way as you begin this new chapter of your life. If you need literature to help guide you through the process and the documents that need to be processed, look at the Student Veteran Handbook.
