Veterans Resource Center

Military Advanced Education & Transition Top Colleges and Universities 2017

One of our primary roles in the Veterans Resource Center is to connect veteran students with the services they need.

Our center offers assistance and guidance to our active duty service members, veterans, reservists, guardsmen, and family members using their VA educational benefits.

We take a collaborative approach with multiple campus partners to bridge the gap between student veterans and other departments on campus that ensure veteran student success both in and out of the classroom.
