Below, you will find information on:
Welcome to your home away from home. With comfortable furniture, a television, and a kitchenette, this space, exclusively for student veterans, is the perfect oasis in which to do homework, relax, and interact with other veterans. It's located in the lower level of College Hall, Room 154B.
Veterans Resource Center
Featuring a computer lab just for veterans, this area is also a great place to find information about benefits and get the scoop on campus and veterans' news. It's located right next to the Veterans' Lounge in the lower level of College Hall, Room 154.
Credit for Military Experience
You learned a lot in the military. Maybe you're even coming to college to expand on that training. We want to recognize that experience with a headstart on college credit. After all, if you've already learned it in the military (one of the best training centers of them all), you shouldn't have to learn it again. You can earn credits for CLEP and/or DSST Exams; you can earn ACE credit for military training/experience. When you come by to visit us, be sure to ask how your training and experience can help you finish a degree even faster.
Student Veterans of America
Want to get involved on campus? We have a group just for you. Student Veterans of America (SVA) is a coalition of student veterans' groups on college campuses across the globe. Their mission is to provide military veterans with the resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and following graduation. By joining the Zane State College chapter of SVA, you'll tap into camaraderie and support from fellow veterans and get involved with campus activities. It's nice to know that you have a network of people who truly understand what it means to have a military background. Check into SVA, and find the support you're looking for.
In-State Tuition for Active Duty Non-Residents
Look, we get it -- active duty service members can move around pretty often. That shouldn't put a damper on your college dreams. Even if you are not an Ohioan, as an active duty service member, you will pay the same Zane State College tuition that an Ohioan pays. It's the least we can do to make regular transfers a little easier on you.
No Penalty for Deployment
The military is not on a semester schedule like your college classes are, and we get that our students in the military could be deployed in the middle of a semester. Don't worry, though. You won't lose the money you've paid for the semester, and those unfinished classes won't hurt your GPA. No lost money, no hit to your grades, and we'll be waiting right here for you when you get home. How's that for loyalty?
