Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center would like to welcome our veterans, military, and their families. We appreciate your service and sacrifice, and look forward to helping you to reach your academic goals.

Our Mission
The mission of the Veterans Resource Center (VRC) at Texas Tech Universtity Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) is to support our Values-Based Culture by assisting our veterans, military, and their families in achieving academic, personal, and professional success.

The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) is here to assist our students with their VA Benefits and Hazlewood Exemption. We are here to ensure that all necessary documents are submitted to the Department of Veterans Affairs and to certify student enrollments. The VRC is a space also available for our military-affiliated students to come study or relax.
