Rio Hondo College Veteran Service Center Mission Statement:
The Veterans Service Center at Rio Hondo College is designed as a liaison between you as a veteran or dependents of a veteran and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Veterans Service Center is equipped to assist you with the appropriate forms to process your claim for educational benefits. Rio Hondo College will forward all appropriate documents concerning the application for the usage of your benefits to the VA processing center located in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
We are here to promote academic and career success for veterans and their dependents.
Welcome to Rio Hondo’s Veterans Service Center. We are committed to assisting our Veterans and their dependents in a nurturing environment of caring and support needed in order to continue their educational endeavors. In order to assist with any challenges our Veterans may face, we are proud to provide a one-stop site where our staff specializes in Educational Counseling, Veteran Certification and Financial Aid. You have served us and now Rio Hondo is here to serve you.
NEW: If you are a Veteran AND you have applied for Financial Aid, you do not need to turn in documents to the Financial Aid office. All questions and documents for Financial Aid are handled in the Veteran’s office only if you are a veteran. We have a Senior Financial Aid Advisor dedicated to assisting our Veterans and processing their financial aid file.
- In order to be certified for Fall, Veterans must turn in Request for Certification in the VSC
- WIP- Work In Progress due at the end of every month for all chapters in order to keep certification ongoing.
