Military and Veteran Services

The mission of the Red Rocks Community College Veteran Services Department is to ease the transition from the military environment to the learning environment by assisting those presently serving and prior-service military members and their dependents with understanding and applying for their GI Bill®education benefits, connecting these students with on-campus and community based resources, and by creating an environment of support and community.

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.
  • Connections with off campus Veteran Services Organizations to help ease the transition from service member to student.
