Military and Veterans Services
Thank You For Your Service!
At Cape Cod Community College, it is our privilege to assist veterans in taking advantage of the numerous educational opportunities available through the GI Bill® and other programs. Regardless of whether you are a new student, a returning student or transferring to our campus from another institution, we are here to help you find the resources you need to make the most out of your time at 4Cs.
4Cs Veterans Center
Cape Cod Community College Military and Veteran Students are encouraged to take advantage of the newly renovated 4Cs Veterans Center. Located on the second floor of the Wilkens Library, the Veterans Center offers a relaxing environment for veterans to study, network, or grab a cup of coffee in between classes. Weekly meetings of the Cape Cod Community College Veterans Association, a student veteran-run organization, are held in the Veterans Center as well.
Veterans of recent military service, and the dependents of certain other service members, may be entitled to educational assistance payments from the Veterans Administration. Reservists and members of the National Guard may also be eligible for monthly educational benefits. Cape Cod Community College is an approved institution for veterans and veterans' beneficiaries training.
