EDUCATION & TRAINING
The New Mexico Department of Veterans’ Services works closely with the NM Dept of Higher Education to ensure all veterans are aware of post-high school education opportunities available to them through the G.I. Education Benefits Bill.
Any veteran who was on active duty on September 11, 2001 and beyond now qualifies for the new Post 9/11 G.I. Bill. This includes National Guard and Reserve Members who were active for more than 90 days. The Post 9/11 Bill may even be transferrable to dependents. Click here for more information about this Post 9/11 G.I. Bill.
Eligible veterans can also apply their G.I. Bill towards a non-university On-the-Job & Apprenticeship Training Program. For a list of all universities, colleges and facilities approved by the VA to use your G.I. Bill, click here.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is developing innovative ways to help Veterans make the transition to college life. The VetSuccess on Campus (VSOC) program aims to help Veterans,Servicemembers, and their qualified dependents succeed and thrive through a coordinated delivery of on-campus benefits assistance and counseling, leading to completion of their education and preparing them to enter the labor market in viable careers. The University of New Mexico (UNM) and Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) are the two institutions in the state of New Mexico to receive the VetSuccess on Campus Program.
