VETERANS RESOURCE CENTER
Voorhees College is poised to open a new Veterans Resource Center (VRC) in early 2019. The VRC is a dedicated office specifically designed and tailored by the school that will manage and maintain GI Bill educational benefits for Veterans and dependents. The VRC will oversee all matters related to dependent education, benefits process, payments, records audits, and serves as the point of contact for all Veterans Affairs inspections at the college. Additionally, the VRC is responsible for the training of School Certifying Officials, certifying GI Bill educational benefit recipients, monitoring VA payments to students and the college, manages VA students tutoring and work-study programs.
VRC Vision – To establish a “military-friendly” education support program that assist veterans, service members and their families with the transition from military service into a positive academic community in pursuit of professional and personal development by connecting students to expert support services and tools to enhance academic and professional success at Voorhees College.
VRC Mission – To establish and sustain a nationally recognized comprehensive “military-friendly” education support program involving application, admission, matriculation, graduation and professional placement that successfully attracts military veterans, service members, dependents and survivors to pursue their academic and professional development interests and goals at Voorhees College.
The Voorhees College Veterans Resource Center and the office of the newly selected Veterans Resource Center Director are both located in Bedford Hall.
