Military Support Services

MSS Headquarters is located in the Good Samaritan Veterans Outreach & Transition Center, with full-time offices at JBSA Fort Sam Houston, Lackland, and Randolph.  Our team provides information, enrollment services and advocacy primarily for active-duty families on behalf of the Alamo Colleges.

St. Philip's College does not engage in high-pressure recruiting tactics, nor do we provide additional compensation for the recruitment of military-connected families. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Before engaging in any voluntary education activities, please consult your education service office for guidance regarding service-specific requirements, instructions, and/or regulations.
