Veterans Services

As part of One Stop Student Services under the Office of Financial Aid, the Veterans Resource Center assists eligible student veterans, active duty personnel, dependents, reservists, and National Guard members with G.I. Bill benefits and questions regarding state and federal educational benefits programs.

This on-campus office is available to you and your family members if you are a veteran or current military member. Contact the Veterans Resource Center with your concerns or questions regarding VA benefits, employment, family assistance, and transition issues.

The office works with various University staff to ensure that you have access to educational benefits, as well as assistance with and/or information on

  • payment extensions while waiting for educational benefits,
  • military transfer credit,
  • veteran resident status,
  • withdrawals due to deployments, and
  • referrals to the correct service providers. Check out the GI Bill Website for complete veterans educational benefits information.
