Military educational benefits
A variety of military benefits are available to help you achieve your education goals.
GI Bill ® benefits may be used for academic programs that lead to a degree or certificate. Other benefits may be used for academic programs or fast-track employment training programs. Learn more about military educational benefits and how to apply.
We are here to support you during your deployment and will attempt to make our part of it as smooth as possible. Learn about your deployment options.
When life gets complicated and stressful, WCC's counseling staff is available to assist you by offering personal counseling so you can continue to reach your academic goals.
VA counselors are available on a limited basis on campus to help coordinate your access to benefits and other resources.
Our center was renamed on Veterans Day 2015, in honor of Tim and Laurie Wadhams for their generous support of the college and continuation of the Veterans Center. WCC is proud to be designated as a Michigan Veteran Affairs Agency Veteran Friendly School.
