What We Do

Welcome to Gateway VETS (Veterans Employment and Training Services)! The program is part of Enrollment Management and is designed to help veterans acquire Gateway credentials and receive employment support. Our mission is to make the transition from the military to college as seamless as possible.

How We Do It

Gateway VETS can help coordinate federal and state education benefit programs for veterans and eligible dependents through Veterans Services. We will assist you with your application for GI Bill benefits and certify your enrollment to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. We also can assist with job placement and provide veteran-focused social events.

Who we are

Daniel Ridley runs this program designed for veteran support. He serves as Gateway’s Veterans Coordinator and Edgewood Admissions Counselor. The VETS office is located at the Edgewood Campus in the Student Services Center. Daniel is eager to help, so if you have questions, drop by the office or make an appointment. Please support our work by referring veterans and letting family and friends know about Gateway VETS.
