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 veterans are also overwhelmed by a combination of emotional, financial, and cultural obstacles that hinder their college education. We are dedicated to ensuring these veterans do not fall through the cracks or get left behind as they work toward higher education and a better life.
Membership Criteria: Open to any who are interested in all things veteran
