Welcome to Veteran Services

Our mission

We are honored to assist veterans, guardsmen, and reservists, in receiving their military benefits; facilitate their transition into academic life; and support their ongoing academic success.

Education benefits information is located at the Veteran Services office located in the Student Services Center or may be printed from the forms page.

Veterans Day is on Thursday, November 8 and several events will be held at the college. Please join us in honoring our veterans.

In conjunction with the Contra Costa Blue Star Moms there are collection bins around campus for goods that will be distributed to veterans at the VA Rehabilitation Center in Martinez. Please see the list of requested goods at this link.
