VetSuccess on Campus Counselor

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is developing innovative ways to help Veterans make the transition to college life. The VetSuccess on Campus (VSOC) program aims to help Veterans, Servicemembers, and their qualified dependents succeed and thrive through a coordinated delivery of on-campus benefits assistance and counseling, leading to completion of their education and preparing them to enter the labor market in viable careers.

The VSOC program provides a VA Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC) to each VSOC school. These VRCs are called VetSuccess on Campus (VSOC) counselors. A VA Vet Center Outreach Coordinator is also provided, and co-located on many campuses, to provide peer-to-peer counseling and referral services.

Through the VSOC program, VA is strengthening partnerships with institutions of higher learning and creating opportunities to help Veterans achieve success by providing outreach and transition services during their transition from military to college life. VSOC Counselors ensure that Veterans receive the support and assistance needed to pursue their educational and employment goals. VSOC Counselors are easily accessible on campuses, which helps assisting with disability accommodations. If needed, they can also provide referrals for health services through VA Medical Centers, Community-Based Outpatient Clinics, or Vet Centers.

TCC Moore Veterans Leadership Academy
The TCC Moore Veterans Leadership Academy is a two semester program beginning in the fall semester that will provide our outstanding student veterans an opportunity to participate in leadership activities related to different areas of career study. This program is a two semester commitment (fall and spring semester), and will consist of student participation in at least one leadership day per month. This leadership day might include participating in a community event, meeting with our community leaders, or visiting a prominent business or other service provider in our community. Mentorship will also be a valuable component of the academy. The academy is generously funded by Richard W. and Karen B. Moore.​
