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.
