At CCV, we recognize the unique needs of our nearly 400 Veterans and Military-Connected Students (MCS). We have many different support services in place to help you with your needs inside and outside of school in addition to services available to all CCV students.
Local Veterans’ Resource Advisors
There is a veterans’ resource advisor at every CCV academic center that can assist you with academic advising, benefits information, course selection and registration, and even refer you to local outreach resources.
Combat to Classroom
This course explores the differences between military and college cultures. Students will gain skills that will encourage a successful transition to college. Students will learn to navigate and access services designed to support success. This course is intended for student veterans or military service members entering college for the first time or for the first time in many years.
For more information or to register for Combat to Classroom, contact CCV Student Services at 802-828-3024 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Veterans’ Peer Mentoring Program
It is widely understood that veterans often feel supported best by other veterans. At CCV we encourage mentoring partnerships between newer student veterans and their more school-experienced student veteran peers. To find out more information or to volunteer your time as a student veteran peer mentor, contact the local veterans’ advisor at your center or CCV Student Services at 802-828-3024 or email@example.com.
Students with Disabilities
Students with disabilities are advised and supported by a coordinator of academic services, who will arrange appropriate accommodations. It is your responsibility to make the college aware of a documented disability and the need for accommodation. To allow reasonable time for arranging services, you should provide documentation four weeks before classes begin.
The CCV TRIO Student Support Services Program is a federally funded program designed to help students reach their academic potential and meet their educational and career goals. Many veterans may be eligible for this program, which offers specialized advising, financial assistance, as well as social and cultural activities.
