College of DuPage

Since its inception in 1967, College of DuPage has matured into something very special. It’s a community college with far-reaching impact. We’re firmly rooted in the community that provides our mandate, yet committed to reflecting the needs and demands of an ever-changing world. From our faculty through to our Board of Trustees, we understand the importance of remaining relevant on multiple levels: interpersonal, academic, civic, cultural and economic. With a steady eye on regional, national and international developments, College of DuPage fulfills its mission as an educational and economic agent of change for the residents it serves.

Why you should attend?

For over 50 years, College of DuPage has provided educational resources to veterans, members of our armed forces and their families. We consider it an honor that veterans choose COD as their institution of higher learning. Veterans on campus have access to all of the resources they need to succeed in community college. Our Veterans Services office is available to help with everything from campus tours and new student orientation sessions exclusively for veterans to referrals for local community resources. Our Student Veterans of America chapter, College of DuPage Veterans Association, strives to create a welcoming and inviting community for all.
