Serving those who served
Central Wyoming College looks forward to the opportunity to serve U.S. veterans. We have a variety of services at CWC to assist you in transitioning to the college, supporting you while you are here, and helping you towards furthering your educational goals or starting your career.
Alongside the Financial Aid and veteran benefits, our Admissions staff can help you with applying to CWC and setting you up with an advising appointment with one of our Success Coaches, to get started. We also provide counseling services, career services, disability support, and tutoring services to all of our students, free of charge. It is important to reach out to these services as early as possible before any problem gets too big.
Go to the VA’s website to learn about the types of education benefits and to apply for education benefits.
If you have used your education benefits previously at another institution, you will also need to complete a VA Change of Program or Place of Training form.
