Bakersfield College is approved as an institution of higher learning for the training of veterans and veterans’ dependents entitled to educational assistance.
Bakersfield College will grant credit to veterans for specific service experience and certain educational training completed while in service. Evaluation of such experience and training will be made by the Office of Admissions and Records.
Credit evaluations will conform to the regulations set forth by the State Approval Agency of the California State Department of Education and the recommendations of the American Council on Education.
Evaluations made and credit allowed by Bakersfield College are subject to review and evaluation by any college or university to which the veteran may later transfer. All educational opportunities and personnel services offered in the college are available to the veterans.
The Veterans Lounge is located in Campus Center.
Hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
The goal of the Vet Center program is to provide a broad range of counseling, outreach and referral services to eligible veterans in order to help them make a satisfying post-war readjustment to civilian life. The room is bright and offers a quiet place for veterans to come and study, rest, take advantage of the literature, and use the center’s computer.
Our club's mission is to be a resource for all veterans that are students of Bakersfield College in order to provide information, service, and a feeling of belonging. We meet in the veterans lounge on select Tuesdays from 10:00 am to 11:00 am.
