Veteran Student Resources


Veterans transitioning from military service to civilian life can find the process challenging and attending college just adds to that pressure.

More than 1,000 veterans enroll at OTC. We opened a new Veterans Lounge on the OTC Springfield Campus, which individuals call a “safe haven” for veterans.

The location of the facility is Room 101 in the Norman K. Myers Technical Center and offers veterans a place to study, relax and talk with other veterans about school or personal issues.


The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) approved OTC for certification of students eligible to receive educational assistance.
Students eligible to receive Veteran’s benefits must be enrolled in a program leading to one of the following:
Certificate, Associate of Arts, Associate of Science or an Associate of Applied Science degree.
