About MilitarySupportiveColleges.com

Supporting Military Service Members, Vets, and Families at Every Phase of the College Journey

As you start looking into the education benefits available to service members, veterans, and their families, you definitely won’t come up short on information.

Online resources published by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, state VA associations, and individual services are readily available. All of them present lots of information on education benefits in that characteristically concise language familiar to anyone who spent any time in the service. You’ll also find thousands of colleges from coast to coast that accept those benefits and offer military supportive services, all promoting themselves as friendly to service members, vets, and their families.

But what you’ll probably find missing is a single resource that ties all that information together, helping you to make sense of it all while providing the kind of clear and actionable guidance you need to confidently take your next steps. Until now.

MilitarySupportiveColleges.com is the one-stop resource you’ve been looking for, designed to ensure you and your family know exactly how to access the education benefits you have coming to you, and which colleges and universities both accept those benefits and respect the service and sacrifice it took to earn them.

Whether you’re a veteran transitioning to the civilian job market, an active duty service member looking to earn a promotion or get a jump on college for your post-service career, or even if you’re looking at joining the service with rank after college, we’re here to help you make the most of every benefit dollar coming your way.
