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.

Services we offer are:

  • Connecting students to campus experts in Admissions, Advising, Financial Aid, Personal Counseling Services, Accessibility Services, Testing Services and Career Services.
  • 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.

NEW! Veteran Scholarship Opportunity!

Red Rocks Community College is a member of the National Association of Veterans Program Administrators (NAVPA). The NAVPA Scholarship is available to veterans, service members and their dependents. However, the Veteran must have received an Honorable Discharge from their last term of service. The application can be accessed via the link below. Scholarship requirements and instructions are detailed in the application. This scholarship does not impact tuition and fees under Post 9/11 GI Bill, as it can be used for general purposes.
