TREASURE COAST -- In line with a long-standing commitment to veterans, Indian River State College has signed on to a national initiative to promote veteran-friendly policies for college students.
IRSC provides a wide range of services for veterans including assistance obtaining financial aid and certifying enrollment for the Montgomery GE Bill, VRAP and Vocational and Rehabilitation Employment Program. The College holds orientation sessions to explain veteran's educational benefits and college processes, provides referrals to state and federal agencies and offers free career planning, advisement and tutoring.
IRSC student veterans benefit from joining the Student Veterans Organization to share experiences transitioning to college and participate in community service projects. The Veteran's Business Institute offers students the opportunity to earn a business certificate in a cohort group with other veterans, and to continue their education with an Associate Degree and Bachelor's Degree in a supportive environment.
IRSC's many programs and services for veterans resulted in the College's designation as a Military Friendly School by Victory Media, which honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans, and spouses to ensure their success as students.
