Our region and surrounding areas have more veterans than any other area in the country. For this reason, San Jacinto College has taken a progressive stand to assist our veterans upon their return. San Jacinto College will open a place of counseling, camaraderie, and quiet study for our community veterans.
The average age of our veterans is 23 to 29, since most entered service right out of high school or shortly after their graduations, they have some challenges adjusting. Certainly our disabled vets face more challenges, but those who do not show visible scars still face very real challenges.
Through The Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success, San Jacinto College will staff each facility with trained personnel which will help assist our veterans in their transition back into civilian life.

On behalf of San Jacinto College Community THANK YOU!
Each campus Veteran Student Success Center will host a Wall of Honor, to pay tribute to the men and women who have served our Country. Please consider honoring a family member or a loved one through the purchase of a name plate. The cost is $250 a plate which includes the engraving of name, rank and branch of service.
Your contribution will not only honor a veteran but also help a veteran student achieve their dream. All donations will be applied to the Veteran Student Success Fund.
