Welcome to Veterans Counseling
Our staff can connect you with our veterans counselors through Zoom video appointments (preferred method) and via traditional phone calls. We are committed to serving veterans and their dependents who are new to college or returning to continue their education.

This is the busy period and appointments can fill up fast, so we have a couple of options for speaking with a counselor.
