Office of Military and Veteran Affairs

Military and Veteran Affairs

The Military and Veteran Affairs Office (MAVA) serves the needs of prospective and enrolled active military personnel, veterans, their dependents and survivors. MAVA aides in application and certification for students who are eligible to receive education benefits under various Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) programs. In this role, the MAVA team facilitates smooth transition and reintegration into the college community. We provide supplemental recruitment and retention efforts, various counseling and one-on-one advisement services, priority registration, academic program information, and certify eligible students to receive DVA education benefits while maintaining productive relations with the Veterans Administration and other agencies serving veterans.

The MAVA Team works closely with many campus departments, and have created a point of contact bridge. Please see our list of support offices and the POC appointed for any inquiries
