Our Mission: To ensure all military affiliated students at Carteret Community College are aware of their veteran benefits, and are advised of all resources available related to their needs, and are provided the guidance and support necessary for a successful transition and enriched educational experience.
Veterans returning to college often face unique challenges. Statistics show that the best way to ensure graduation numbers are strong among veterans is to guarantee that plenty of support is provided when they re-enter the educational institution.
The Veteran Student Success Center (VSSC) of Carteret Community College now supports over 211 Veteran Student/Family members.
The new VSSC is a lounge in the Bryant Student Center that has been beautifully remodeled and designated as a place for veterans to relax, converse, and connect with other veterans.
Some of the amenities include:
Computer work stations
Kitchenette space with new refrigerator and microwave
Million dollar view of Bogue Sound
