Veterans & Military Success Center
Supporting Our Nation’s Heroes with a Military-Friendly Academic Environment
Veterans Services administers various veterans’ and dependents’ educational assistance benefit programs of the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) for students attending this institution. Our goal is to provide information and guidance about entitlements, filing claims to the DVA, certifying enrollments, and other supportive services for student veterans and eligible family members enrolled at Northwest Florida State College. We at the Veterans & Military Success Center are here to serve you. Take full advantage of our expertise, and gain the most you can from this once-in-a-lifetime educational opportunity.
Established in February 2019 at the Niceville Campus, the Veterans & Military Success Center is a one-stop shop to expand educational opportunities, transitional services and career services for veterans and their families. The Veterans Success Center creates a cooperative community for student veterans and provides resources for leadership, support, advisement and campus engagement. Additionally, the Veterans Success Center offers a tranquil, professional and respectful location, where student veterans and their family members can study or pursue other scholastic assignments.
The Veterans & Military Success Center staff includes Student Success Navigators who have specific expertise in military education programs and VA education benefits. New students are highly encouraged to make their initial inquiries for VA educational benefits to the Veterans & Military Success Center (Building 410) at the Niceville Main Campus. Military-affiliated students can also visit the Hurlburt Field Center inside the Hurlburt Education Center located at 221 Lukasik Ave, Hurlburt Field, FL for assistance.
VetSuccess on Campus (VSOC)
VetSuccess on Campus (VSOC) is a program through the Veterans Benefits Administration that places an experienced Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor on campus to assist and support student veterans and eligible family members. The VSOC Counselor works directly for the Department of Veterans Affairs and serves as a “liaison” for veterans on campus. All student veterans, Active Duty service members, and family members attending Northwest Florida State College can access the Department of Veterans Affairs through the VSOC Counselor.
The VetSuccess on Campus (VSOC) Counselor can assist with:
- Information on Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment and various VA education benefits
- Vocational exploration and assistance in selecting a suitable career
- Assistance with referrals to VA Medical Centers and local Vet Centers
- Information on submitting a claim for disability compensation
