Veterans Resource Centers

The Veterans Resource Centers (VRCs) are an open and welcoming space that supports all students in attaining their educational goals at PCC. The VRCs focus is on providing veteran and military-affiliated students, their families, and the surrounding veteran community with advocacy, resources, support, and cultural engagement.

We offer transitional tools for veterans to be successful on their path back into civilian spaces. We also provide a space to socialize, grab a coffee, study, or relax. All students, staff, and faculty are welcome to engage and learn more about the veteran culture and vets on campus.

What we offer
  • Virtual channels to connect with other students, staff, and faculty online
  • Physical spaces at each campus to relax, study, snack, and meet other veterans
  • Meet with a coordinator or program specialist to discuss veterans’ matters
  • Consultation on veteran and military-related issues
  • Support in accessing or navigating PCC or VA systems for resources such as:
    • Classroom accommodations
    • Career Counseling and Academic Advising
    • Determining Eligibility for VA Educational Benefits
    • Enrolling in VA Healthcare
    • Filing disability claims with VA
    • Tutoring services
    • FAFSA, grant, and scholarship assistance
  • Assistance in locating any other relevant, local resources for veterans
  • Programming that supports academic retention and goal completion
  • Connection to community-based networks and associated resources
  • Student job opportunities at each campus location
  • Leadership and professional development programs and workshops
