College is within your reach — whether it’s to further your education, convert your military experience into college credit, finish an uncompleted degree or retrain for a new civilian career.

We want to help you receive the full value of your educational benefits. And most of all, we want to help you succeed in college.

We can help students apply for their VA benefits. Find out more about how to apply for and receive VA educational benefits.

North Lake’s VA Office offers individual academic advisement, registration, degree planning, course certification for VA benefits, and referrals for campus and community resources.

College Credit for Heroes

North Lake College is a proud participant in the College Credit for Heroes program. This initiative offers credit for computer information technology training and experience which veterans gained during their years of service. If you serve or have served and received IT training, participating in this program will reduce the amount of time needed for an associate degree to just 18 months. You can also earn professional certification in 10 months.

Student Veterans Association

North Lake College's Student Veterans' Association seeks to fulfill three goals: provide veterans a place to connect with each other, encourage campus involvement, and reach out to serve the community. Regular events help veterans support each other through the transition to student life. Visit the Facebook page, email northlakesva@gmail.com or contact faculty advisor Hillary Gallego, hgallego@dcccd.edu or (972) 273-3480.
In spring 2015, the NLC SVA organized a 5K "fun run" fundraiser, which raised money for a new student veteran scholarship.
