Veteran Student Success Center

We, the INDYCC family, would like to say, “thank you!” You have made a significant sacrifice in serving our great country.  It is with this appreciation that the Veterans Success Center Staff would like to welcome you to our campus.  INDYCC is a safe place for Veteran transitions.  Our support team understands the level of complexity, stress, and anxiety that is involved when a person transitions from the military and into the campus environment.  Additionally, INDYCC was recently appointed as a Purple Heart College by the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH).  This classification is in recognition of the support for military members, including veterans and their families.  We intend to offer the most productive and effective services to assist you in preparing for and applying to our college.  Again, thank you and please consider allowing us to be of service to you!

Our Program

The Center of Excellence for Veteran Student Success (CEVSS)’s mission is to support student veterans in achieving their academic, career, and personal goals.  Made possible by a Department of Education Fund for the Improvement of Secondary Education (FIPSE) grant, the evolving success center at INDYCC serves as a focal point for veteran students focusing on four key areas: 1) aiding veterans’ transition to campus life, 2) increasing retention, 3) completing a degree 4) and/or transferring to a four-year university.
With dedicated support staff, the Veteran Student Success Center provides veteran students, currently active, National Guard, Reservists, and military dependents with information about various campus and community support resources.
