WNCC Veteran's Center

In the Fall of 2019, we are opening our new Veteran's Center to help out students in an easy-to-locate position on our Scottsbluff  Campus. The center will offer many services, including: 

  • Free tutoring
  • Computer usage
  • Free printing 
  • Free school supplies 
  • Snacks 
  • A safe, low-key place to study and find commrades in arms 

Important to note:

  • Chapter 35 Dependents - you may be eligible for a tuition and fees waiver through the State Department of Veterans Affairs. 
  • In-state tuition rates apply to active duty military members and dependents of those members who are stationed in Nebraska.
  • If the military member is reassigned to another state, the military member's dependent will maintain eligibility for in-state tuition as long as the dependent is continuously enrolled in a degree program at a state institution.
