VetSuccess on Campus

VetSuccess on Campus

The VetSuccess on Campus program is a collaborative effort between Houston Community College (HCC) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) with the purpose of providing a supportive on-campus environment for student Veterans and their dependents.  Services provided will enable them to make a smooth transition to college life and successfully complete their educational programs. 

The VA has placed a full-time, experienced Vocational Counselor on the HCC campus.  This counselor will serve as a “one-stop liaison” for Veterans, active duty military and their eligible family members who attend or plan to attend HCC.

  • Information on VA educational benefits to include: Montgomery G.I. Bill (Chapter 30), Post 9/11 G.I. Bill (Chapter 33), and other VA and non-VA educational benefits 
  • How to apply for and maximize your VA educational benefits should you be eligible for more than one benefit
