Attention Veterans

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.

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.
