VetSuccess on Campus is a program through the Veterans Benefits Administration that places an experienced vocational counselor at a local college to provide assistance and support to veteran students and their eligible family members.

Have you heard of the “VSOC” program? It stands for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) VetSuccess on Campus program – and Johnson County Community College serves as a location spot!

Through the VSOC program, VA places experienced vocational rehabilitation counselors on college campuses to assist the growing number of service members, veterans and dependents attending school under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® and other VA educational programs.

These VSOC counselors have been trained to provide academic and vocational guidance to veterans and help connect them to other VA benefits, including healthcare and mental health services. The VSOC counselors maintain close relationships with local VA vet centers and VA medical facilities, referring service members, veterans and dependents as needed and providing assistance applying for VA medical and nonmedical benefits.

VSOC services are available to service members, veterans and their dependents who are eligible for any of VA’s educational programs.

VA’s Education and Career Counseling Program offers a great opportunity for transitioning service members and veterans to get personalized counseling and support to guide their career paths, ensure most effective use of their VA benefits, and help them achieve their goals.

A VSOC counselor is available for walk-in appointments from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Mondays and Fridays in COM 302.

If you need to contact a VetSuccess Counselor, please call the VA Regional Office in Wichita at 316-688-6842.
