All campuses are open and ready to serve students virtually, hybrid, or in person.
Veterans Resource Center
The Veterans Resource Centers (VRC's) at Collin College connect students with resources designed to ensure a smooth transition into college and foster academic success.
Veterans are welcomed and encouraged to utilize the study area and computer stations at the centers. Spending time in the VRC also provides students the opportunity to network with other individuals who have served.
The Veterans Resource Centers coordinate college-wide services to connect military-affiliated students, with on-campus and community resources to ensure a smooth transition into college life and to foster academic success. Our services range from providing information about admissions, academics, financial aid, and VA education benefits to advocacy and resource referral.
At Collin College, veterans and their families can expect an exceptional experience!
