Veteran Services

Welcome to Florida SouthWestern State College’s Office of Veteran Services



The Office of Veteran Services is here to help our student veterans and dependents successfully transition from military life to college life by offering you support and resources. We assist you with every step of using your veteran benefits to help you pay for college tuition and related expenses so you can stay focused on earning your degree. We also provide you with opportunities to link with fellow veterans to connect and support each other.

The Florida Bureau of State Approving Agency has approved Florida Southwestern State College for veteran education and training. To utilize your V.A. benefits at FSW, you must first meet the admissions requirements and be an admitted student. Our office acts as the liaison between students and the state, federal, and local veteran affairs departments. Our staff serve as School Certifying Officials (S.C.O.) and are entrusted with certifying student’s educational benefits to the Department of Veteran Affairs.

The Veteran Services Office is located on the Thomas Edison (Lee) Campus in the Q Building. We support students on all campuses. Students attending the Charlotte, Collier, or LaBelle Campuses are welcome to drop off documents for the VA office at their respective Financial Aid Office.
