Welcome to the Saddleback College Veterans Education & Transition Services (VETS) Program webpage.
Saddleback College is committed to easing the transition process and providing opportunities for success to our United States Military Veterans. The VETS Program directly provides support services and acts as a bridge to external support services for student Veterans, active military personnel, and their loved ones. VETS Program services include but are not limited to: new student guidance, Veterans counseling, scholarship and financial aid assistance, access to emergency grants, a link to the Veterans Student Council, outreach to the military affiliated community, a venue for community-building, and more. The VETS Program hosts events aimed at reintegration into civilian and college life.
During this time the VETS Program and all services are available to support you remotely and now, at a limited capacity, on campus as well! During summer 2021, one day of week every week of counseling will be offered from June 15th to August 5th. For more information and the specific dates or to make an appointment with a Veterans Counselor for academic, career, and/or personal counseling, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 949-582-4252. Please include your full name and student ID #.
