Each semester military students may go into their online student center or visit the VSO to find out what books are required for classes. The VSO allows military students to print book lists for classes enrolled. Book lists contain book ISBN numbers which are used to easily find books in the MCC Bookstore or other academic textbook resources. It is strongly encouraged that military students search for the best price option available before your final purchase as some companies offer military discounts for military students.
VSO Book Lending Program
The Veterans Service Office has a small library of free academic textbooks available. These textbooks have been donated by fellow students who wish to share their textbooks with military students. The process for acquiring these books is simple. Ask the front desk of the VSO for access to the VSO library, select the books you need and sign them out. It is recommended to come at least two weeks before the semester starts to select a book.
If you are interested in donating books please come into VSO and speak with a staff member. When turning books in at the end of the semester please consider donating them to your fellow veterans. Your book donations can help relieve the financial burden for current and future veteran students.
Military students who are eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill Benefits qualify for the annual VA Book Stipend.
Note: The Book Advance Loan and Post 9/11 Book Stipend are different types of aid. The Book Advance Loan is a loan that must be paid back in-full.
Tutoring is an easily accessible option for students whom may seek additional academic assistance while attending school. There are many options as it pertains to tutoring. MCC offers free tutoring services through the tutoring center and many academic departments offer free tutoring for their respective programs. Information on free tutoring for military students can also be found in-person in the VSO office.
In addition, some VA Education Benefits are eligible for personal tutoring. If you VA Education Benefits qualify the VA will cover tutoring fees up to $100.00 per month in reimbursement. To determine if your VA Education Benefit is eligible for the VA Tutoring Program visit the VSO or click here.
The Veteran Service's Office has computers available for classwork for military students along with a printer and a quiet study space.
