How can we help?

Thank you for your service. Now, let Harper serve you.

Harper College supports your success. Resources are available for our veterans and military-connected students (active duty, reservists, veterans and eligible dependents). Many offices have designated Veteran Services Representatives who are trained in the specific needs of veteran students. For assistance on how to get started at Harper as a veteran or military-connected student, contact Veteran Advisor Ben Allen at or 847.925.6522.

Consider joining the Harper Student Veterans Association. Members share a special camaraderie, unique to the men and women who have served our country and that extends to creating a community for military-dependents and civilian supporters. The Association offers support and advocacy needed to help you succeed in higher education.
