Veterans Services

Madera Community College's (MCC’s) Veterans Services Center provides personalized and caring support to MCC’s student veterans during their transition from military service to college life. We help our veterans navigate through Madera Community College and provide assistance with VA educational benefits, as well as give veteran students the tools to succeed academically and personally. 

We value the skills, assets and experiences veterans bring to the Madera Community College community, and are committed to helping them achieve to their educational goals. The Veterans Service Center also increases campus awareness of student veteran issues, advises the student veterans club and fosters a sense of camaraderie, community and well-being for all student veterans on campus.
