The mission for Massasoit’s Veterans Services is to honor and support our service members both current and former as well as their families by providing the most comprehensive and caring college experience possible while helping them to reach their educational, personal and professional goals.
Massasoit Community College is approved for the training of veterans and their dependents. The College maintains an Office of Veterans Services located in the Student Center, Room SC118 on the Brockton Campus. Veterans are assisted in obtaining educational benefits, work study positions, tutorial help, and other services.
Veterans or dependents eligible for assistance under the Veterans Administration programs should contact the Office of Veterans Services after they are matriculated (enrolled) into a degree program at Massasoit and are ready to register for their classes.
Massasoit Community College under S2248 PL 115-407 will not enforce any penalties for any late payments or any other penalties against a veteran, dependent or eligible individual. Any portion of the student bill not covered by VA benefits is still expected to be settled by the due date.
The Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 (codified at 38 U.S.C. 3679) has been amended by Section 1005 of Public Law 116-315, the Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D., Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020, which modifies 38 U.S.C. 3679(c).
The amendment requires that for all courses, semesters, or terms beginning after August 1, 2021, public institutions of higher education must charge qualifying veterans, dependents and eligible individuals tuition and fees at the rate for in-state residents.
As amended, 38 U.S.C. 3679(c) requires that the following individuals be charged the in-state resident rate:

Bill benefits (38 U.S.C. § 3319) who lives in the state in which the institution is located (regardless of his/her formal state of residence).
