For Military/Veteran Students

Military/Veteran Students

Military Education Support Office (MESO)

The Military Education Support Office (MESO) at MATC is committed to supporting our student veterans, guardsman and reservists by providing educational services and facilitating connections to Federal and State resources and services. Our goal is to ensure that our veteran and current military service students make a successful transition from military to academic life and achieve their educational goals.

Veterans Resource Center

If you are a veteran, currently serving in the military, or are a dependent/spouse receiving benefits and you'd like to meet other veteran students, then you have come to the right place. At the Veterans Resource Center (VRC), we seek to provide a sense of community among those who have served in any branch of the United States military.

Transitioning From Military to College

Learn guidelines for veterans who are entering college and find answers to common questions a veteran applicant may have. 

Tuition Assistance

Eligibility for Tuition Assistance benefits varies by branch. 

Military Credit For Prior Learning

MATC recently revised the entire MCPLE program to better serve our student veterans. This program is also continuously being updated as more faculty and departments update their specific program course credit requirements. 

Veteran Financial Aid Benefits

Veterans' GI Bill recipients can use their Veterans Administration (VA) benefits to pay for college expenses. Veterans may also be eligible for other types of financial assistance, such as Financial Aid. MATC's Military Education Support office is available to help you make a smooth transition into a college program using your veterans' benefits.
