Military and Veteran Services
At Red Rocks Community College, we honor the commitment and sacrifices our service members and their families make to serve our country, so we work to make the transition from service member to college student as easy as possible.
The Military Veteran Services Center assists eligible veterans, active duty military, Reservists, National Guard members, and dependents with the services they need to reach their academic goals.

- GI Bill Certification.
- Referrals to campus and community resources.
- Support and campus activities to ease the soldier-to-student transition.
- Promoting camaraderie among military students through organized student veteran and military associations.
- Access to Military and Veteran Student Center. A place to study, mingle, and learn more about veteran related events and resources.
