Ranked Best for Vets by Military Times
Opportunities for Military & Veterans

Jefferson Community College is great for active military and veterans who want to earn college credit. Our college is close to the Fort Drum U.S. Army base, just a 10-minute drive away. Active duty military and their families can take classes on our main campus, which includes lab sciences, art, music, and culinary. We are the only physical college campus within a 50 mile radius of Watertown, and we were one of the first to partner with Fort Drum Education.
