Veteran and Military Resource Center (VMRC)

Recipient of 2021 Center of Excellence for Veteran Student Success grant, Sponsored by the Department of Education
Designated Gold-Standard Military Friendly, 2022.

The VMRC provides a communal space for use by all military connected students, including spouses and dependents. Military connected students are welcomed to a private center that includes a computer lab and separate lounge area with grab and go snacks and drinks. The VMRC also houses the space for the Student Veteran Organization and S.A.L.U.T.E. Honor Society.

The VMRC provides social, educational, recreational, and leadership engagement opportunities, as well as academic support services designed to ensure the well-being and success of veterans, service members, and their supported family members. The VMRC team is also available to assist with any on- and off-campus staff resources and referrals.

At the VMRC, military connected students will receive guidance on applying and registering, accessing documents and receiving their Veterans Administration (VA) education benefits; potential VA work-study opportunities within the VMRC may also be available.

All returning, transferring, and newly enrolled military connected students in a degree program or VA approved certificate program will have a one-on-one experience in all areas of student processing. Both Academic Advising and Financial Aid each have a designated Military and Veteran connected liaison to assist with any situation, concern, or question, including college credit for the student's Joint Service Transcript (JST).  

The number of Certificate programs approved by the VA are limited and must be verified for benefits to apply. Ocean County College partners with colleges and universities statewide to create seamless transfer pathways for students. For more information visit the VRMC site. 

VMRC staff are available to answer questions, so feel free to stop in!
