It is a privilege to have United States veterans, service members, and reservists among our student body. We embrace the diversity and profoundly value the strength and unique character this diversity has contributed to our college.
Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) has a long history of providing education and training to veterans and those on active duty who are seeking to gain new skills, enhance existing skills, and translate skills learned in the military for use in the civilian world.
CVTC is approved by the Wisconsin State Approving Agency for training of qualified individuals under Veteran Education Benefits Act (GI Bill), and for training of eligible dependents of deceased or 100% disabled veterans.
Veterans Services assists with the GI Bill process and serves as a liaison between various Federal and State agencies, the College, and our students. CVTC does not and cannot determine eligibility for veteran benefits; the VA determines all eligibility. Veteran benefits DO NOT exclude you from receiving financial aid or scholarships.
CVTC works in collaboration with the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Medical Center to offer VA-sponsored mental health support services to veteran students. The Veterans Administration’s Medical Center provides, through the Community-Based Outpatient Clinic in Chippewa Falls, mental health support to veteran students through a Telehealth service available in Room 113.
