In an effort to reach out to student veterans, MiraCosta College has opened the Veterans Information Center, located in the T100 Building on the Oceanside campus. The Veterans Information Center provides a place for students to find resources on G.I. Bill benefits, MiraCosta Student Services, and community organizations that are dedicated to assisting veterans. The Center also provides a place for students to relax, study, and meet with friends.
The Veterans Information Center is staffed by Veteran Peer Advisers. Peer Advisers are MiraCosta students who understand the unique circumstances and challenges that veteran students face because they are veterans themselves. They are specially trained to assist students in identifying relevant programs and resources that are available on campus and in the community. Resources are available on a variety of issues, including employment, counseling, housing, and healthcare.
The Veterans Information Center also has a MiraCosta College counselor available by appointment. Counselor Rebecca Morgan is the full-time veterans counselor. Additionally, a VA Representative, Brenda Olsen is available on campus. Please call the Veterans Information Center at 760.795.6981 to make an appointment, find out drop-in counseling hours, or get other information about these services.
To process and receive your G.I. Bill benefits, please see Veterans Education Office.
