Veterans Resource Center and Community

No matter who you are, there's a place for you at St. Scholastica. And for veterans, we mean that literally. The Veteran's Resource Center (VRC) is a physical space on campus specifically for veterans — serving as the base of operations for an ever-supportive and welcoming community that guides you through the ups and downs of college life. 

But no matter where you are, our Veterans Resources Coordinator will advocate for you — using all of our available resources to ensure you have a positive experience.

We also have generous financial aid packages and scholarships that make us even more affordable.

Support Services

We have people here who can help with everything that's going on with you — big and small. Academic advisors who guide you through your academic and social transition to college. A Career Services Department that helps you discover how to leverage your military skills for career success. On-campus counseling and health services to ensure your mental, physical and emotional well-being. So no matter what you're going through, at CSS, you're never alone.

Academic Services

You learned a lot from your time in the military, now it's time you get credit for it. Our academic advisors will work with you to get every possible credit out of your military training and transcript and craft an academic plan that's unique to you — whether that's graduate or undergraduate, online or on-campus, or somewhere in between.

Our Center for Equal Access will help you stick to this plan, no matter what disabilities or medical conditions you may have. And our leave policy will let you take time for deployments and pick up right where you left off.
