The mission of the Veterans Education and Transition Services (VETS) Center is to provide comprehensive support services to prospective and current students, including community college transfers, who are members of the U.S. armed services. In addition, the Center will provide assistance to student Veterans in dealing with and resolving their unique academic and life issues.
The VETS Center is open to veterans, their family members and the Eastern Connecticut State University community.
