Voluntary Education Program

The Voluntary Education Program provides personal and professional learning opportunities to the Marine Corps community.  The program positively impacts recruitment, retention and readiness of all Marines.  Services and resources are provided by counselors through individual counseling, education briefs and education fairs.


Marines can expect individual counseling regarding many aspects of college such as finding the right college, testing, obtaining credit for prior military learning, financial aid and other options that may shorten the amount of time or funds required to complete a degree.  Our team will also provide one-on-one assistance with using WEB Tuition Assistance, where you can apply from your workstation.
