VA Couple

Veteran Student Affairs

We are proud to serve active duty service members, reservists, Veterans and dependents eligible for benefits at HCC. We are here to serve as liaisons between our students and the faculty, staff, service organizations, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Educational benefits are one of the most valuable benefits afforded to Veterans and qualifying dependents. These benefits are designed to provide eligible individuals with an opportunity for educational and career growth. We are here to help you get the most out of your benefits. The Office of Veteran Student Affairs at HCC is not part of the Department of Veterans Affairs, nor is the staff employed by the Department of Veterans Affairs or Veterans Benefits Administration.

We will be resuming limited on-campus services beginning July 20th. For your safety, all students, faculty and staff will be required to wear a mask while on college property. Physical distancing will also be required, which will limit the number of people in waiting areas, offices, and common areas. For these reasons, we highly recommend taking advantage of our remote services. Please make a phone appointment or email veteranstudentaffairs@hccfl.edu for assistance.
