Walk-in VA Hours Posted Each Week

As you prepare for the Summer and Fall 2014 semesters, please remember that students are able to visit during VA walk-in hours each week. Please keep in mind, these hours are updated weekly and you should check availability before you come to the College. If these hours do not work for you, you may schedule an appointment by emailing us at Also, general questions and document drop off can take place at the Veterans Center during regular walk-in business hours (Monday-Friday: 8:30-12, 1-4).

A question we often receive is “why are there specific VA walk-in hours, and I can’t come at any time the office is open?”  Brookdale takes providing services to our Veterans seriously. We want to ensure when you stop by our office we are able to assist you with your needs, and provide you with the attention you deserve. Each week we offer a mix of morning, afternoon and evening hours. If the VA hours do not work for you, please feel free to call or email with your questions or to schedule an appointment. You may email or call 732-224-2095.

The VA Certifying Officials have general walk-in office hours, no appointment is needed. Students who need to submit paperwork, have questions, or require further information should visit during these hours.  If these hours do not work for you we may be able to schedule an appointment for a more convenient day and time.   Information will not be accepted outside of these hours/appointment hours.  These hours may change on a weekly basis.
