VETERAN

Welcome Veterans

Northwest State Community College welcomes veterans, military service members and their dependents. Our staff and faculty are dedicated to assisting you in transitioning into college and supporting you in meeting your educational goals. At NSCC, we understand that the transition to student life can be challenging, yet rewarding. With that in mind we have worked very hard to ease this transition for you.

NSCC is dedicated to providing you with services and resources that will assist you in adjusting to civilian and campus life. Our staff can assist with the following:

  • Identifying federal and state education benefit options
  • Advocating military transfer credit
  • Withdrawals/re-admit due to deployments or call to Active Duty status
  • Connecting veteran students with campus resources, veteran service providers, and other agencies encouraging academic success at NSCC

Above all, we encourage you to use the NSCC Registrar’s Office as your central point of contact for anything you need throughout the admission, registration, and entire enrollment process. We are here for any questions, concerns, or assistance and to be your advocate on this campus.

COLUMBUS, OH, May 9, 2023 - Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) Chancellor Randy Gardner today named the latest group of Ohio colleges and universities designated as Collegiate Purple Star campuses for their efforts to support students with military backgrounds.

This latest group of 10 Collegiate Purple Star campuses increases to 46 the number of schools that have earned the designation since 2022. Ohio was the first state in the nation to offer these designations, which advance the work already done by Ohio’s PreK-12 school system to create the Purple Star designation for those schools that worked to become military friendly. Included in the "public campuses" group is Northwest State Community College.

"Northwest State is proud to be designated with this prestigious award," said Dr. Todd Hernandez, President of Northwest State Community College. Hernandez, a veteran of the United States Navy, continued, "Our Registrar's office does a tremendous job with courteous and diligent service to our military community, providing access to available resources, and a great education at Northwest State."
