Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC)

Vincennes University is a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium of approximately 1,900 colleges and universities. SOC Consortium members subscribe to principles and criteria to ensure that quality programs are available to servicemembers, including member's of the National Guard and Coast Guard, their family members, reservists, and veterans of all Services. As a SOC Consortium member, this institution ensures that military students share in appropriately accredited post secondary educational opportunities available to other citizens.
