Roxbury Community is committed to assisting our U.S. military veterans, reservists, guardsmen, and active duty personnel with navigating the educational process so that they can achieve their educational and professional goals. We have created a veteran-friendly environment that encourages veterans and their families to further their education and transition to college.
Before coming to Roxbury Community College please visit www.gibill.va.gov or contact the VA representative (V.A. Buffalo: 888-442-4551) in order to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility.
We also recommend that veteran students also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. You may qualify for grants to assist in paying for your education and supplies in addition to veteran benefits.

Meet Our Student: Geoffrey L. Jenkins
Geoffrey L. Jenkins is a veteran of the United States Armed Forces who is currently enrolled at RCC. Prior to his three tours in Iraq and his one tour in Afghanistan, he was employed as an auto mechanic. After leaving the armed forces, Geoffrey decided that he wanted to use the skills he learned in the field in his career. “All of us were trained to be trauma responders while on-duty,” says Geoffrey, “I decided that becoming a nurse would allow me to formally continue the training that I learned while on tour.” Geoffrey is currently completing his prerequisite courses, before formally joining the nursing program. He hopes to complete the program in 2018.
