Veterans Resource Center (VRC)

Veteran Services

The Mission of the BIGHORN Golf Club Charities Veterans Resource Center (VRC) provides critical service and support for our veterans; active-duty, National Guard and Reserve military personnel; their spouses and dependents; and faculty and staff. We assist our veterans' transition back into civilian life as they learn to navigate the California Community College system and support the success, retention, and educational need of our students.

The VRC provides the following services: Veterans Academic Counselor; VA School Certifying Official who processes certification of VA education benefits for all chapters; study space with access to computers, internet, and printer; opportunities to meet and socialize with other student veterans at the college; and home for the College of the Desert's Student Veterans Organization (COD SVO).

For additional information or assistance, stop by the VRC located in the Cravens Student Services Center Room 125, visit their webpage, call (760) 773-2536, or email Veterans.

In accordance with the Harry W. Colmery Educational Assistance Act of 2017 (PL 115-48 Sec 107) calculation of monthly housing allowance under Post-9/11 GI Bill will be based on the location of the campus where classes are attended.
