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 can help connect students to resources both at school
and in the community.
