This is our one stop for veterans, service members and family members. We assist Veterans, service members and their families with the transition from a military environment or civilian life into an enriching academic community. We consider it an honor that you are considering DSCC as your institution of higher education. We are dedicated to offering resources and services to enhance your academic, personal and professional success in and out of the classroom.

We have programs that match your passion. We are here for you, wherever “here” is. On Campus. On Base. Online.
