Southeastern Illinois College is proud of our area veterans who served and soldiers currently serving. As we have the opportunity to serve you, we want to make your transition from military life to student life smooth. The Financial Aid Office maintains a Veterans Certifying Official to help eligible veterans and dependents of veterans use their educational benefits. Many veterans and active duty personnel can qualify for more than one education benefits program. We can help you determine which program you are eligible for and what program will benefit you more.
You have done your part, let us serve you.
The Veterans’ Office is located within the Financial Aid Office on the lower floor of the Abell Administration Building (building E).
Fall and Spring office hours are 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Summer hours are 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Appointments are NOT required but can be arranged if necessary.
