Staff will be on campus Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning on 7/14/21. Our hours will be 7:30 AM - 4:00 PM until Fall semester begins. Students are strongly encouraged to setup appointments to meet with staff on campus so they don't experience wait times when they arrive and so we can keep the amount of people inside the building at a minimum. We are asking that students keep their distances when they are inside the building. Waiting areas will be setup in the main lobby and the veteran lounge area. To request an appointment an email can be sent to email@example.com. Wednesday will be geared toward benefit counseling and Thursdays will be geared towards academic advising.
During this time of crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have setup a chat feature so you can reach our Veteran Affairs staff easier to answer any GI Bill and/or enrollment questions you may have.
Thank You For Your Service
The overall goal of the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs (OVMA) is to achieve the position and prestige of being the #1 Veteran-oriented campus in Michigan. The mission of the office is to provide a one-stop-shop atmosphere for our veteran and dependent students with the main goal being to assist our students in selecting the proper VA GI Bill education benefit and help them enroll in a chosen GI Bill benefit. The OVMA also acts as a liaison between students, the VA, and other LCC departments; making contacts on behalf of students when needed. We also offer a dedicated academic advisor, and a large veteran lounge area as a place for veteran students to meet, relax, and work on school work.

Veterans on Campus
Michigan Veteran Affairs Agency
LCC has been named a Michigan Veteran Friendly School since the program began in 2016. The Michigan Veteran-Friendly Schools Program recognizes academic institutions committed to supporting the needs of veterans and military-connected students. These institutions are awarded Gold-, Silver-, and Bronze-level status based on their veteran-centric services and programs.
The Military Friendly Schools survey is the longest-running most comprehensive review of college and university investments in serving military and veteran students. LCC has been named a Military Friendly Institution since the 2015/2016 academic year, and plans to continue to be Military Friendly each year.
From standard financial aid to the many military benefits programs, our office of Veterans Services can guide you through this process so that your college experience begins seamlessly.
Veteran Emergency Fund
LCC offers a Veteran Emergency Fund through the LCC Foundation Office in order to help our veterans and veteran dependents who are in financial need. Funds can be given to students to help them with many different needs, including: rent payments, utilities, groceries, gas, books/supplies, insurance, etc. We can provide up to $200 per request, but we ask our students to repay the funds when they can during the semester, order for us to help the next student in need. A request form, W9 form, and repayment agreement need to be completed in order to receive the funds. Contact Andrew Cosgrove for more information.Email the Foundation
