Tri-County Technical College deeply values the service and sacrifices of our veterans. We are committed to assisting them in their transition from uniform to classroom and beyond.
TCTC provides its student veterans with support services and assistance to help them transition to civilian life and to be as successful in the civilian world, as they were in the military. Assistance for student veterans includes tutoring, career services, Patriots’ Place (resource center) and the Student Veterans Association.

Patriots’ Place, a resource center specifically for our student veterans, opened in the Fall of 2013 on TCTC’s Pendleton Campus. Offering a social and study area with refreshments, Patriots’ Place gives our student veterans an area where they can relax, study and socialize with other student veterans. Local community veteran support agencies will also be available during the school year to help provide access to available resources. Visit Patriots’ Place for a current schedule of agencies and hours.
Location: Anderson Hall 109, Pendleton Campus
