Point of Contact: Jennifer Petersen, Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor, Phone: (727) 319-5800, x76961

The University of South Florida was the first educational institution to partner with the VA to create VetSuccess on Campus.  The program began in May of 2009 as a pilot program and has since been codified into law and expanded to 94 campuses across the United States. 

VetSuccess on Campus (VSOC) is a VA program that is focused on assisting Veterans, Servicemembers, and Veterans’ dependents with their educational and career goals. Like the name suggests, the VSOC program and services are provided on-campus at the University of South Florida, offering a full-time VA counselor to serve students in need of benefits assistance, career guidance, selecting an educational path, and counseling for adjustment and transition.
