Welcome to the Veterans' Resource Center (VRC) at Santa Monica College, serving veterans entering college for the first time or returning to college to further their education.
The center acts as a liaison with the Veterans Administration to verify enrollment for students claiming benefits under the G.I. Bill or the Veterans’ Vocational Rehabilitation Program. We can also assist the veteran with referrals to various veteran-serving programs in the West Los Angeles area.
