We thank you for you and your family’s service to our nation!
The 22 TCSG colleges – many with full-time veteran’s assistance programs, veteran’s coordinators, and student veteran’s organizations – are committed to helping you and your family make the smooth transition from military service to civilian employment.
Concerned about the cost of college? You shouldn’t be. The tuition for more than 600 accredited college programs at the TCSG colleges is among the lowest in the Southeast. Combine that with your hard-earned military and veterans benefits as well as some great new grants from the State of Georgia, and you can obtain a world-class education at little expense to you. Plus, TCSG colleges have new financial initiatives specifically for military, veterans, and their families, including: an out-of-state tuition waiver for active duty military, their spouses and dependent children stationed in Georgia.
Your new career is waiting!
The Georgia Department of Veterans Service is an agency of state government created for the purpose of advising, counseling, and assisting Georgia’s veterans and their families in receiving their rightful benefits under the vast and complex framework of veterans’ laws.
Georgia VECTR Center serves as a gateway for veterans’ re-entry into Georgia’s public post-secondary educational systems and workforce.
The Center provides unique, accelerated programs in high demand and strategic industries tailored to abbreviate the process of receiving post-secondary certificates and degrees by recognizing the extensive training veterans receive during their military service.
Through on-site partners (Georgia Department of Veterans Service, Georgia Department of Labor, Department of Veterans Affairs and United Way/Mission United) the Center provides a one-stop-shop for veterans seeking benefits, educational opportunities, employment services and links to community resources.
A marketplace of jobs, resources and services. Operation Workforce serves as an online one-stop for veteran resources and services in Georgia. This web portal provides resources from various state agencies and private organizations. Veterans are able to utilize these resources to translate their military occupational classifications into civilian occupations that best align with their skill set and training.
A primary goal of the Georgia Department of Labor is to assist individuals to attain their work goals and increase self-sufficiency through employment, training, comprehensive rehabilitation, and support services.
