We're here to help!

If you are a veteran or a child or spouse of a veteran, WITC will help you navigate the college experience each step of the way.

WITC has a designated Veteran Student Advocate who is available to provide assistance in educational planning and career guidance for military-affiliated students. 

How can WITC help you? 

Support for students can include finding the right program fit, navigating the application and enrollment process, providing academic and non-academic support, and assisting in accessing benefits or obtaining credit for prior training and experience in the military.
