Co-Lin acknowledges the high level of commitment our military personnel have devoted to their country. Our Veteran Services Office is prepared to assist you in furthering your education. There are many benefits and resources available to you whether you choose to attend Co-Lin on the Wesson Campus, Natchez Campus, or Simpson County Center and the Veteran Service Office can serve as your ‘one-stop-shopping’ for most all actions. Also, all graduating veterans receive an honor cord from the Veterans Services Office whether using military-related benefits or not.

Among other awards, Co-Lin earned the 2017 Military Friendly School designation by Victory Media for the seventh year in a row. The Military Order of the Purple Heart also designated Co-Lin as a “Purple Heart College” for outstanding service to military veterans, service members, dependents and survivors. Additionally, Co-Lin was named to the Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges 2017.
