Vet Corps members are stationed at many colleges throughout the state.

Vet Corps members help veterans achieve their higher education goals by:

  • Providing training and support to college faculty, staff and administration to increase awareness of student veterans’ needs;

  • Providing a peer connection for veterans new to higher education;

  • Helping the college to meet the needs of student veterans; and

  • Providing veterans with connections to federal, state or local veteran’s benefits.

The Vet Corps helps veterans and their family members navigate Washington’s higher education and training programs as veterans adjust from military to college life.
