Operation Green Zone

Green Zone training allows faculty and staff to learn more about the military-affiliated student experience. The purpose is to train members of the FTCC community on the issues and concerns military-affiliated students face and to identify available individuals to assist this population. These individuals are not expected to be experts who can “solve problems.” Instead, they can lend a sympathetic ear and help students connect with the appropriate resources. If you are a student and need to talk about anything, please feel confident in any of the Green Zone Participants for help.

VA Educational Benefits

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides education benefits to eligible service members, veterans, and certain dependents and survivors. You may receive financial support for undergraduate and graduate degrees, vocational and technical training, licensing and certification tests, apprenticeships, on-the-job training, and more.

Transition Tech

Transition Tech is a training program for transitioning military service members that provides industry-focused certificates and credentials, resume assistance, and mock interview opportunities designed to prepare individuals to enter the civilian workforce. These courses are FREE to veterans/active military in transition through a partnership with Workforce Development (NC Works).

Yellow Ribbon Program

FTCC is participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program for the 2017 – 2018 academic year. The scholarship is awarded to eligible student veterans on a first come , first serve basis.

Student Veterans of America (SVA)

Since SVA’s founding in 2008, over one million veterans have returned home to pursue a post-secondary degree or certificate using VA education benefits. To meet this need, SVA’s presence at the local and national levels has grown to include over 1,100 chapter affiliates, numerous private and nonprofit partners, and most importantly, an expanding list of impactful programs and services for veterans. The nation’s renewed focus on veteran welfare has ignited change on campuses and in congress. SVA is committed to capitalizing on this momentum to ensure today’s and tomorrow’s veterans are supported in their transition to education and employment. If you are a veteran, active duty service member, spouse, or dependent attending FTCC, you are already a member of our SVA chapter. Through fundraising for veteran scholarships and volunteering in the community, we strive to give back and create a welcoming environment for veterans on campus. We invite you to participate!

FTCC Chapter: Monthly Meetings

The FTCC SVA Chapter meets every 2nd Monday of the month at 1:30 p.m. in the All American Veterans Center (General Classroom Building, Room 202-A). If you have any questions or are interested in participating, please contact us at sva@faytechcc.edu.

History

In 1944 President Franklin Roosevelt signed in to law the Serviceman’s Readjustment Act of 1944, otherwise known as the G.I. Bill of Rights. When service members returned home from conflicts overseas, they flooded schools to use these new educational benefits. The schools were not prepared for the influx of enrollment and did not know how to deal with the enrolled veteran students. It was a hard transition period for veterans returning home. Student veterans banded together to form peer-to-peer support groups. Through the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s this trend continued. In 2001 veterans begin using social media to communicate across campuses nationwide. In 2008 the organization Student Veterans of America was formed.

How to Enroll

To use your VA educational benefits, make sure you first follow the steps to apply for admission to FTCC. When you submit transcripts, please include all applicable high school, college and military documents.

To receive your VA educational benefits:

You must certify enrollment after you register for classes.
This includes:

  • The beginning of each semester
  • Any time your schedule changes

The VA only pays in-state rates. Confirm your residency during the admission process. An out-of-state student is required to pay the difference in tuition cost before certification of enrollment can occur. You will receive a confirmation email from the VA after your certification has been processed. Keep this for your records.
