Bergen Community College created “The Veterans Connection” to ensure that service members and veterans can focus on their reintegration into civilian and student life as well as their academic success. The College’s faculty and staff are committed to working with veterans to make their college experience both rewarding and productive. Veterans are encouraged to take advantage of a variety of programs, services and resources at the College that support veteran student success.

The Veterans Connection at Bergen:

  • Works with veterans to assess their military experience in relation to their academic goals.
  • Helps veterans in learning about VA benefits and how to access them, as well as a variety of programs and services available.
  • Assists veterans with reintegration into civilian and academic life.
  • Introduces veterans to other students at Bergen who share common experiences.
  • Serves as a conduit for raising understanding on issues that impact veteran students.
