Office of Veteran, Transfer, and Adult Student Support

VTA Student SupportThe purpose of the Office of Veteran, Transfer, and Adult (VTA) Student Support is to advocate for the unique concerns of undergraduate students from these diverse populations and provide assistance that connects the students to important campus resources. 

The VTA Student Support Office provides a range of services to help make your experience at DC as positive as possible: 

Success Coaching
The VTA Student Support office will provide one-on- one assistance for a student to identify his or her strengths and needs as the student takes on the additional responsibility of college. As a success coach, we are here to help students to build an efficient and flexible set of study, time management, and problem-solving skills for their new college environment. We work personally with students, assess their strengths and needs, and devise an individual plan of action.

Veterans Resource Center
We appreciate the service and sacrifice our U.S. military veterans have made for all of us. The Veterans Resource Center is available for military veterans to use while they are enrolled in classes at Defiance College. The Center is located in Defiance Hall and is equipped with computers, a printer, and other resources. More information for Veterans at Defiance College can be found at
