ATC welcomes veterans, active-duty service members, and military family members of the United States Armed Forces. We have a support structure in place to assist men and women who have served in the U.S. military and their family members with applying for their education benefits and certification of enrollment. Other services offered include assistance with admissions, applying for financial aid, academic advisement and counseling. Thank you for your military service, and thank you for choosing Aiken Technical College to pursue your dream career!

To receive your VA Education benefits, you must apply online through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Because you may be eligible for more than one benefit, programs are explained here and a Comparison Tool is also available.

For more information and your next step, read the Enrollment for Veterans' guide.
