The Northern Wyoming Community College District (NWCCD) offers a number of resources to military veterans. Get started with your own veteran advisor who will be your point of contact for admissions, enrollment, financial aid, veteran benefits and programming to support academic and career success.
Student veterans are allowed to register for the next semester up to two weeks prior to registration opening. This ensures a class schedule that best supports individual needs.
Be sure to visit our Veterans Center to connect with other vets in the lounge to study, utilize the computer lab or join the Veterans Club. Each campus has Student Veterans of America (SVA) chapters that work to promote the general welfare of student veterans and advance veterans’ issues on campus and in the community. Typical activities include semi-monthly meetings, campus & community color guards, trips, coffee groups, paintball, color runs, Spartan runs, guest speakers and more.
The Veterans House, located on the Sheridan College campus, is dedicated housing just for military and veterans creating a supportive living & learning community.
