Berkeley College offers a full-service Office of Military and Veterans Affairs led by an Assistant Vice President. The Office's primary role is to see to the needs of Berkeley College’s military and veteran student population. From answering questions about VA educational benefits, to counseling military members and veterans on Berkeley policies and procedures, to acting as an intermediary for student-veterans when they have problems or concerns, the Office maintains a dedication to meeting the diverse needs of the military and veteran population.
In addition, the Office of Military and Veterans Affairs maintains four dedicated sites in order to provide greater outreach and support:

The Academic Support Center (ASC) at Berkeley College provides tutoring and helps students to achieve academic success by meeting with them on a regular basis to improve learning and study skills. Students can receive free tutoring in subjects such as Accounting, Computer Applications, English, Math, Reading, and Writing. On the ASC website on Blackboard, students can access a variety of handouts, presentations, and links to all of the above subjects, plus some very useful information about study skills, time management, and test taking.
