Military & Veterans
YOU SERVED OUR COUNTRY, NOW LET US SERVE YOU!
North Country Community College is committed to serving the educational and vocational needs of those who have served our country. We welcome all active duty service members, veterans, and their dependents. We strive to assist them with the transition from military life to academic life. NCCC is a veteran friendly campus. Over the years, hundreds of veterans and their dependents have received their college education with us. We are proud that these veterans have become alumni of NCCC.
We know that selecting a college that not only offers the certificate or degree you are seeking, but also is experienced in assisting veterans in receiving the maximum benefits provided under the Montgomery GI Bill is important to you. It is also important to us here at NCCC.
In addition to the traditional forms of financial aid, students who are military veterans or a child/spouse of a veteran may be eligible for additional financial assistance for their educational expenses.
More information on how NCCC supports veterans can be seen here.
