Veteran & Military Services

Welcome Veterans and Military Members!

We would like to welcome you to Miami Dade College and the MDC Veteran & Military Services family. We realize your decision to enroll in college was thoughtful and yet a bit intimidating. Please know you have an entire department at your service to help you transition to college life. Here's how:

  • Veteran & Military Clerks/Liaisons help you understand your benefits and guide you through the process of class certification
  • School Certifying Officials process your certification and benefits through the VA
  • Military Services Specialists address the needs of active-duty military members and spouses
  • Student Success Coaches take a holistic approach to education and are concerned with your academic, emotional, financial, and social needs. Coaches provide academic advisement, information on how to receive credits for prior professional experience, and access to community resources.

Our Veteran & Military Services Resource Guide is a valuable tool for you to use for step-by-step instructions, viewing required documents for various GI Bills, educational information for navigating MDC college life, tuition assistance and scholarships, out-of-state tuition waivers, and examples of various forms.

Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns. Our main office number is 305-237-2841. You may also schedule a virtual appointment with one of the staff.

It is our honor to serve those that have served.
