Military Friendly School

The John A. Logan College Veterans Resource Center is in place to offer support, guidance, and direction for our Veteran’s (and dependents) while they apply for their military education benefits. Our office is manned by student workers who are veterans and a Veterans Affairs Specialist who is also a veteran.

The Veterans Resource Center is available to help veterans and their dependents maximize their college funding at John A. Logan College. Over 300 students, both veterans and dependents of veterans, currently receive veterans’ educational benefits at our institution.

The Veterans Resource Center is committed to making the transition of Veterans from the military to John A. Logan College an easy process. If you are a Veteran who is interested in attending John A. Logan College, or have already been accepted, your first step should be to contact the Veterans Resource Center. If any questions arise please do not hesitate to contact us or stop by.

We are located in room C206. If you enter the building from the front entrance (where the bell tower is), you will veer to your left, go up one set of stairs, and we are the second door on the left; across from testing services.
