The Student Veterans Affairs office provides veterans and their family members attending Schenectady County Community College information about benefits, vocational rehabilitation, and resources within the campus as well as community. The unique feature of this office is that staffing is done with veterans who are students at the College. The Office, consequently, provides a space where veterans and their family members attending SCCC are not only able to obtain important information, but can also link up with others on campus who may have similar experiences and concerns.
