Veterans Admissions

Welcome, and thank you for your service!

SMC is proud to support military veterans by providing specialized admissions advising by staff trained to help veterans make the most of their VA benefits. 

Veterans who enroll at Southwestern Michigan College are eligible for a number of benefits, including paying in-district tuition rates, early registration, and access to the Veterans Lounge, a place where vets can study, relax, and connect.  

SMC has been named a Gold-level Veteran-Friendly School by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency.

After applying for admission, our veterans’ advisor will work with you to navigate all the necessary paperwork for a successful enrollment.
