Military Friendly School
Victory Media has named Scottsdale Community College a 2017 Military Friendly School. The designation was determined by combining SCC’s survey scores with an assessment of its ability to meet minimum thresholds in six areas: student veteran retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates.
Our Veterans Services office is dedicated to helping veterans achieve their educational goals and dreams. Our success was recognized last year when we were named a “Veteran Supportive Campus” by the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services, the first Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) school to receive that designation.
The SCC Veterans Services team members stand ready to guide and connect you to all the services and resources available to you, from GI Bill® education benefits to other VA services. We are experts at helping you connect with military (see Related Resources) and SCC resources, including tutoring, counseling and academic guidance.
Come on in and let us help you with:
- Scholarship applications

- Mentoring Program
We also provide a Veterans Lounge on campus as a place where you can study, visit, or meet fellow veterans. The student Veterans Club provides a network of social activities and campus support. If you would like to join the Veterans Club, please contact Veterans Services.
