Veteran Education and Transition Support

The Veteran Education and Transition Support (V.E.T.S.) Program at Lake Erie College assists individuals that have served or are currently serving in the armed forces of the United States of America, as well as their dependents, in attaining educational goals. V.E.T.S. supports students with guidance in their curriculum, as well as assistance through the College's administrative processes. V.E.T.S. provides guidance by serving as a liaison between military life and the college experience.

VETERANS, Next Mission....... Graduation!

V.E.T.S. proudly offers a "One Stop Shop" for the enrollment process at the College. The program assists the veteran in enrolling, obtaining records, and all Veteran Administration benefits among other things. Our goal is to be there for our veterans from "Enrollment to Graduation" and beyond.

Why Should Veterans Consider Lake Erie College?

  • Serves to be one of the few area colleges with a serious emphasis on supporting veterans and their families
  • Fosters collaborative opportunities and relationships for veterans within the community
  • Assists veterans with their application to LEC and GI Bill benefits
  • Provides "The Bunker," which is a veteran-only center for studying and socializing

Yellow Ribbon Program

Lake Erie College is an active participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a bill education enhancement program that allows a degree-producing Institution of Higher Learning to enter into a tuition-funding agreement with the Veterans Administration.
The College collaborates with the administration to contribute significant funding for tuition and housing for students participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program. The program can serve as a substantial financial boost with no reduction in entitlements for those veterans attending private school, enrolled in a graduate program or paying out-of-state tuition.
"To serve the Veterans who served America!"
