VetSuccess on Campus (VSOC)
VetSuccess on Campus (VSOC) supports Veterans and service members who are transitioning from military to college life, and certain qualified dependents. We have vocational rehabilitation counselors, called VSOC counselors, at 104 college campuses across the country.
Am I eligible for VetSuccess on Campus?
There are 2 ways to qualify, depending on whether you’re a service member, a Veteran, or a dependent.
As a service member or Veteran, you must be eligible for educational assistance under any VA educational program.
As a dependent, at least one of these must be true. You:
- Are eligible for the Fry Scholarship, or
- Are eligible for the Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance program, or
- Have had GI Bill benefits transferred from a spouse or parent, or
- Are eligible for educational assistance under any GI Bill program
How can VSOC counselors help me?
VSOC counselors can help you with vocational testing, career counseling, or getting faster access to certain VA benefits while you’re attending college. VetSuccess on Campus is part of the larger Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) program.
VSOC counselors can also help you by:
- Showing you how to get referrals for campus health services
- Making referrals to VA health services
- Helping you get disability accommodations, like help with taking notes or writing assignments, in the classroom
How do I find out if my college has a VSOC counselor?
