Zane State College’s Veterans Affairs Office can provide you with the tools you need to develop your academic plan. Our goal is to ensure you have a positive classroom experience.

As a veteran student, you may experience feelings or obstacles that can impact your overall academic success, such as:

  • Post-Military Identity
  • Stress/Anxiety Disorders
  • Getting Involved
  • Feeling Safe
  • Financial Responsibilities
  • Relating to Fellow Students

As you prepare for coursework at Zane State College, we recommend you and those close to you visit these web sites:

Launched in 2011, MakeTheConnection.net connects Veterans, their family members and friends, and other advocates with mental health informationlocal resources, and inspiring stories of recovery. Visitors can find reliable information on how to cope with challenges such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury, military sexual trauma, and transitioning from service.

HB 488 of 2014 requires that Ohio public institutions of higher education provide veteran students with preference in scheduling courses.

Per HB 488, Zane State College offers priority registration and scheduling preference to veterans, current members of the military, and dependents who are using education benefits through the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Course schedule preference means that veterans and dependent students who are admitted to all courses for credit offered at Zane State College are able to start registering for courses sooner than students with the same class standing.  Zane State College’s goal is to ensure that veterans and military service students are moving through their academic programs in alignment with the time limits on their benefits and to recognize their service.
