VA’s VetSuccess on Campus Program marks 10th anniversary

WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Service in June celebrated a decade of the VetSuccess on Campus Program, or VSOC, which supports service members, veterans and eligible dependents as they complete their education and obtain viable careers.

The VSOC program, which provides dedicated vocational rehabilitation counselors on VSOC school locations to support eligible students, began as a pilot initiative at the University of South Florida in 2009, and, since then, has expanded to support 104 schools across the country.

“VA is committed to ensuring eligible beneficiaries have the opportunity to achieve their career objectives,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. “The VSOC program is a great example of how VA is delivering on that commitment.”

VSOC assists participants by helping to guide their career paths, reach educational and career targets and access their VA benefits.

Last year, the VSOC program assisted over 44,000 participants in pursuit of their educational goals through on-campus benefits assistance and counseling.
