Mission Statement

The Mission of the Veterans Resource Center is to provide assistance through education, certification, and guidance to military veterans and their dependents in achieving their educational objectives and to effectively promote the retention, graduation, and transfer of military veteran students and their dependents.


Antelope Valley College refrains from providing any commission, bonus, or other incentive payment based directly or indirectly on securing enrollments or federal financial aid (including TA funds) to any persons or entities engaged in any student recruiting, admission, activities, or making decisions regarding the award of student financial assistance.

Antelope Valley College refrains from high-pressure recruitment tactics for the purpose of securing Service member enrollments.

In the event AVC's Cohort Default Rate (CDR) rises above the national average, the result will be displayed on this webpage.

AVC is a Title IV school and thereby abides by the readmission policy for servicemembers.  The readmission requirements apply to servicemembers who perform service in the uniformed services, whether voluntary or involuntary, in the Armed Forces, including service as a member of the National Guard or Reserve, on active duty for training, or full-time National Guard duty under Federal authority (but not State authority), for a period of more than 30 consecutive days under a call or order to active duty or more than 30 consecutive days.
