Veterans

As a veteran, you are part of a unique population. Unlike many traditional college students, you have already had training and job experience in the military. It may not be easy, however, to connect those experiences with potential majors and future job targets. We recognize that the transition from the military to college and civilian life can present challenges. The CCPD has resources that may be of particular interest to veterans. Below you will find helpful information about civilian and federal resumes, transition assistance, and job postings specifically for veterans. Please explore the useful links and documents on this webpage for more information.
