Resources for Veteran Students
From recruitment to graduation, your Veteran Success Advisor is with you to make sure that you are taken care of. If there is an issue with your benefits, a need to change a class, or just a general question, your Veteran Success Advisor is here to help. When it comes to course registration, we understand that you have responsibilities outside of school. For student veterans classified as a “special population”, you are able to register early to ensure that you are able to get into the classes that you need.
