DMACC Veterans Services

We are dedicated to assisting you in achieving your educational goals and working with you to receive the veterans benefits you have earned.  We greatly appreciate the sacrifice you have made for this country and our goal is to help you maximize your veterans benefits and obtain the degree or certificate you seek.

Veterans' Education Benefits

If you have served in the military, or are the spouse or dependent of a veteran, you may be eligible for veterans' education benefits. Because the cost of attending DMACC is relatively low, veterans' education benefits can often cover the cost of tuition with funds remaining to assist with the cost of books, fees, supplies, housing expenses, gas money, etc.

This website is designed to give you an overview of most of the veterans' education benefits. It is not a comprehensive listing of all possible veterans benefits you may be eligible for. For detailed information about specific education benefits and the many educational options at DMACC, contact the Veterans Services Office.

After spending the last 20 years in the Navy, I chose to re-enter school and find a new profession in Graphic Design. The DMACC staff understands that students learn and develop in different ways while maybe also dealing with past issues. Their support helped get me through the tough times, and I will be forever thankful to DMACC for having the program and people that gave me a new path in life.
