Support student veterans at Columbia Basin College
Support Student Veterans Today
The Veterans Education and Transition Services (V.E.T.S.) Center was established in the Fall of 2013. Since opening its doors, it has served more than 600 students a year which include veterans, active duty, reserve/guard, and military dependents. The V.E.T.S. Center is dedicated to supporting student veterans in their transition from military service to furthering their education and creating a foundation for a successful future utilizing our many services such as; academic advising, education benefits certification, navigating the college system, workshops tailored to veteran student success, and mental health counseling, among countless others. With a student veteran population of 3.8% of the total CBC population, CBC military connected students have greater awareness of the benefits of higher education, greater resilience (stay in school and/or complete a program), are more professionally-minded, and display greater initiative. Your donation goes directly to funding programs that contribute to the academic success of our student veterans, and the continued giving back to those that have given so much for us.
