Military-Related Students

Discipline. Consistency. Courage. Resilience. You already have the character—let us help you earn the credentials.

At TCC, we understand the unique needs of military service members, veterans, and their families, so we established  The Center for Military and Veterans Education (CMVE) as our cornerstone for military outreach and support.

  • Here at the CMVE you’ll benefit from military and academic resources tailored to active duty and reserve service members, veterans, military spouses and dependents.
  • You’ll find affordable, flexible, convenient degrees and certificates that can help you turn military experience into college credit
  • We have a specialized team of representatives—many with military experience—dedicated to supporting you as you prepare to transfer to a bachelors degree program or pursue a meaningful career.
