Veterans Information

Connecticut College values the perspectives and contributions of those who have served our country in the military and welcomes applications from veterans who may wish to finish a Bachelor of Arts degree through our Return to College program. Veterans with questions should email Cynthia Goheen.

Voter Registration

The Office of Volunteers for Community Service (OVCS)at Connecticut College actively promotes voter registration among faculty, staff and students at the College. The OVCS office serves as a central location for members of the College community to pick up voter registration forms and absentee ballots for any state in the U.S. OVCS also runs shuttles to voting sites in New London on election day to encourage voter participation in exercising their right to vote. Student political groups, too, are often involved in helping.
