VETERANS RESOURCE CENTER 

Veterans CenterFor those who have served our country, now it is our turn to serve them through our new Veterans Resource Center. This new facility is designed to be a gathering place for El Camino College student veterans so they can study, get to know one another, and have a place of their own to hang out between classes. Amenities such as computers and a workspace make it an ideal location to spend free time.

Support services available at the Veterans Center include: access to computers, computer assistance, a study area, workshops, and referrals to a variety of resources, both at the college and in the community. Staff can help students with paperwork regarding their educational benefits, as well as assist them in becoming successful in the college environment.

At the Veterans Resource Center, we are here to help student veterans meet their educational goals. With excellent academic offerings, affordable fees, small classes, outstanding student services and a great Los Angeles-area location, El Camino College truly is an excellent way to focus on your future.

Veterans Resource Center Artwork

Veterans Resource Center Artwork

In honor of veterans all over the country, six artwork panels representing a branch of the U.S. Military were created and donated to the new Veterans Center on November 11, 2011 by the South Bay Folk Artists, a chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters. The work “Tribute to our Troops” was designed by chapter artists as a tribute to the armed services and those who have served. Twelve volunteers, including a few chapter artists who are also El Camino College employees, worked on the canvas panels that cover a large wall in the Veterans Center.

Veterans Assistance

El Camino College is approved as an institution of higher learning for veterans and veterans' dependents entitled to educational assistance. The Veterans Office provides assistance to veterans and eligible dependents in planning educational programs and maintaining compliance with Veterans Administration regulations. It is important that VA beneficiaries notify the Admissions and Records Office and Veterans Office of any changes in enrollment.
