The Federal Government and the State of Alabama have established programs to provide financial assistance to veterans and their dependents. Our goal is to assist our VA students with resources and guidance to succeed in their educational goals. Educational counseling for veterans, dependents, and active duty personnel is provided through the Financial Aid Office. Veterans are encouraged to stop by the ESCC Financial Aid Office for applications and information or contact the College’s VA Coordinator.

For more information, please contact:
