As you prepare for the semester, please remember that you may visit the Veterans Center for general questions or document drop off during our regular business hours (Monday-Friday: 8:30-12:00, 1:00-5:00 unless otherwise noted). If you have specific questions for, or would like to meet with the VA Certifying Official you can do so during the walk-in hours posted below. 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

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. Please keep in mind, you can visit the Veterans Center during our regular business hours to drop off paperwork, or if you have general questions. 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.
