We want to help you overcome barriers to your education and your continued success!

Educational Barriers
Increase your awareness of program qualifications, programs of study, and course load expectations.

Information Barriers
Provide you with a “go-to” person who is available to help you with transitioning from military to civilian life (campus and community resources).

Financial Barriers
Provide you with the most up-to-date information on federal and state benefits, and connect you with the School Certifying Official.

Cultural Barriers
Provide professional development to administrators, faculty and staff on military experience and challenges that military-connected students face.

Provide assistance with:

  • Tuition resources and admissions process
  • Financial support resources
  • Personal academic planning
  • Student veterans community involvement opportunities
  • Career Development

If you are a Veteran, active-duty service member, dependent or survivor of a veteran, reservist, or member of the National Guard, you may be eligible for federal or state educational veteran benefits. Our military friendly staff can assist you with the application process and ensure a smooth transition into college.
