The Veterans Resource Center will help you receive all the benefits you have earned through your service to our country. We serve all military, dependents, and veterans with respect, compassion and confidentiality.
About the Center
This is the only place you need to go if you have questions or have a problem you need help with. If we can’t answer your question or fix your problem, we’ll find out where it gets fixed and give you the shortest path to get there. We look forward to helping you realize your educational and career goals.
We’re located on the first floor of Evans Hall in Room L1002. The Veterans Lounge is right next door in room L1005. It's the place for vets to meet, relax, have a cup of coffee, warm up their lunch, watch TV, use a computer and more. Kind of a mini USO right on campus.
- Transferable credits
- Credit for military experience
Everything You Need
Connect with everything you need to get started and succeed in college, including:
- Advice about educational and career options to help you continue a career direction or take a new one.
- Documenting and obtaining credit for military training, including getting a copy of your military transcript.
- Understanding and applying for your educational benefits, or if you’ve already used these benefits, exploring other funding options that may be available to you.
- Helping dependents understand and make use of their benefits
- Acquiring and filing any needed forms or records (e.g. 22-1995 or DD-214).
We understand that veterans may have distinctive challenges, including post traumatic stress disorders, traumatic brain injuries, other injuries or life-impacting circumstances. We’re familiar with those challenges and can help.
Contact us if you have questions or just want to chat about your educational goals.
Student Cara Myhre came to Evergreen after a 10-year career in the Army. She is interested in becoming an art therapist, and towards that end, enrolled in the Narrative Objects program. The class, taught by Jean Mandeberg and Steven Hendricks, incorporated fine metal and book arts and examined ways in which objects can participate in, contain and create narratives. The miniatures project assigned for this class inspired Cara to reflect on the time she served in the active war zone of Iraq in the early 2000s.
We Are Vet-Friendly
Evergreen's programs are approved by the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) for enrollment of persons eligible to receive educational benefits under Title 38 and Title 10 USC.
Cultivating a Welcoming Environment for Veterans
We have a group of students, faculty and staff members who monitor, raise awareness, establish processes and advise the Evergreen community in matters related to the needs of our veteran student population.
We also offer campus tours, information sessions and lunch thru the Joint Base Lewis-McChord transitions team.
