The Vet Success on Campus (VSOC) program aims to help student veterans and their qualified dependents succeed and thrive at UNO. VSOC does this through on-campus benefits assistance and counseling that leads to the completion of students’ education and preparing them to enter the labor market.
VSOC counselors ensure that veterans receive the support and assistance needed to pursue their educational and employment goals. Because VSOC counselors are easily accessible on campus, they help resolve any problems that could potentially interfere with a veteran’s educational program, including assisting with disability accommodations. If needed, they can also provide referrals for health services through VA medical centers, community-based outpatient clinics, or vet centers.
VSOC counselors are also Vocational Rehabilitation (Chapter 31) counselors. If you elect to use this benefit, it can be very convenient to work with your counselor right on campus.
