BERKELEY COLLEGE LAUNCHES
ONLINE VETERANS RESOURCE CENTER FOR STUDENTS 

Berkeley College is proud to announce the launch of an Online Veterans Resource Center (VRC) for students. By visiting the Online VRC, student veterans can find information about Veterans Affairs benefits, connect in real time with the staff of the Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, and research military-related community service opportunities.

“Berkeley College created the Online Veterans Resource Center to enhance the capabilities of our on-site VRCs,” said Richard E. Robitaille, EdD, Berkeley College Assistant Vice President, Office of Military and Veterans Affairs. “The Online VRC gives us an opportunity to reach a far greater number of student veterans, as well as students who are active service members stationed overseas.”

Berkeley College serves approximately 500 military students in New Jersey and New York, and through Berkeley College Online. The College currently has VRCs at its locations in Midtown Manhattan, NY; and Newark and Woodland Park, NJ. A VRC is scheduled to open at the Brooklyn, NY, location this spring.

The Online VRC can be viewed at http://berkeleycollege.libguides.com/veterans

Berkeley College participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program under the G.I. Bill, and collaborates on educational ventures with the National Guard; the Army and Air Force; the GoArmyEd distance learning program; and the Navy College Program Distance Learning Partnership. The College also administers the Combat Veterans Educational Partnership (CVET) program.

The College has been recognized as a Military-Friendly College by G.I. Jobs magazine and Military Advanced Education magazine, and was ranked in the top five on the Military Times magazine “Best for Vets: Colleges 2013” list.

A leader in business education for more than 80 years, Berkeley College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and enrolls more than 7,700 students — including over 800 international students — in its Baccalaureate and Associate degree programs. The College has three New York locations — Midtown Manhattan, Brooklyn and White Plains. In New Jersey there are four locations — Woodland Park, Paramus, Woodbridge and Newark. Berkeley College Online also offers full degree programs. Programs are offered in more than 20 career fields. The website address is www.BerkeleyCollege.edu.
