Veterans, active military personnel, reservists, and military dependents are a vital part of our student community and we are here to assist you in successfully completing your educational goals. Our mission is to provide the best assistance possible to all current and prospective Military Connected Students.
Our staff will help guide the way through veterans programs and education benefits, and provide assistance with the forms and information related to military grants and scholarships made available through the state of Illinois.
