Student Veterans Association

Purpose: The Student Veterans Association (SVA) of North Central Michigan College is a coalition of student veterans, active duty personnel, family members, and friends. Today more and more veterans are coming home from deployments and exiting the military. It is often difficult for service members to locate information on, understand, and obtain the resources and benefits that they are entitled to. Many are also overwhelmed by a combination of emotional, financial, and cultural obstacles that hinder their college education. We are dedicated to ensure these veterans do not fall through the cracks or get left behind as they work toward a higher education and a better life. If you would like to help or need help please contact us at: or visit us on facebook. For more Veterans information, check out the Student Veterans Resourse Center.

Membership Criteria: Open to all interested in all things veteran.
