Veterans Services administers various veterans’ and dependents’ educational assistance benefit programs of the United States Department of Veterans Affairs for students attending this institution. The Veterans Affairs Office (VAO) is part of the Northwest Florida State College Office of Financial Aid, not the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA).
Our goal is to provide information and guidance about entitlements, filing claims to the DVA, certifying enrollments, and other supportive services for Veteran students and eligible dependents enrolled at Northwest Florida State College. We at the Veterans Affairs Office 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.
New students are highly encouraged to make their initial inquiries for VA applications at the Veterans Success Center (Building 500) at the Niceville Main Campus.
Veterans Success Center
The Veterans Success Center provides a one-stop shop to expand educational opportunities, transitional services and career services for Veterans and their families. The Center offers a tranquil, professional and respectful location, including state-of-the-art infrastructure and technology, where Veterans and their family members can study or pursue other scholastic assignments. Additionally, the Veterans Success Center creates a cooperative community for veterans and provides resources for leadership, support, advisement and campus engagement.
