It's our turn to serve you.

At SCC we strive to do our best to ensure educational success for some of the nation’s best and brightest students – our service members and veterans.

We are honored to partner with an active Student Veterans Organization to conduct various campus activities year-round, including a full Veterans Week in the fall. In May we host a Medaling Ceremony to recognize graduating service members and veterans.

With a dedicated veteran services coordinator (who is a veteran), a Student Veterans Lounge and hundreds of military-affiliated students attending SCC, service members and veterans here are never far from their peers.
