Maricopa Community Colleges is military friendly
It's an honor that U.S. veterans, active reservists, and family members of veterans are among our student body. Both active duty military personnel and veterans often seek educational support and job training to transition from military service to civilian life, and many start with a community college.
At Maricopa Community Colleges, services for military personnel, veterans, and their dependents are designed to offer the highest quality assistance. We offer a variety of certificates and degrees to assist veterans with career and educational goals, workforce development, and preparation for university transfer, as well as a variety of support services. We also have a long history of providing education and training, allowing you to enhance existing skills, gain new skills, and translate military training and experience into a rewarding career.
All of our colleges have received the Veteran Supportive Campus designation by the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services. Additionally, Maricopa Community Colleges is a partner organization of the Military/Veteran Resource Network.
We have an established tradition of providing access to higher education and we are dedicated to serving those who serve.
Understand your education benefits
As a veteran, active duty member, or dependent you can receive military benefits to help cover education costs.
Begin the enrollment process
The enrollment process for veterans and active duty students is generally the same as other students – however, the way you pay tuition and fees is different since you receive alternate sources of funding and active duty members must contact their Education Services Officer (ESO) before beginning the enrollment process.
Learn about veterans and active duty policies
Keep in mind there are many regulations and policies that apply to veterans and active duty students. For more comprehensive information about these regulations and policies, visit our Consumer Information site.
