Veteran Orientation

The Office of Veteran Services knows that starting college can be a stressful and sometimes frustrating process.  In order to help alleviate the stress and frustration of starting college, Veteran Services has developed an orientation for military-connected students that takes place within the Veterans Center.  Each Veteran Orientation takes place at the end of scheduled Transfer Student Orientations.  You can expect a 45 minute briefing covering the following topics:

  1. Applying for and using the GI Bill
  2. Paperwork needed to certify enrollment to the VA
  3. Other benefits or scholarships that students may qualify for
  4. Campus and Off Campus Resources
  5. Common Issues that military-connected students face
  6. Tour of the Veterans Center
  7. Meet professional and student staff members of the Veterans Center

The following are the dates and times for the Summer and Fall 2018 Transfer Student Orientations:

  1. Friday, April 20th, 8:30 am - Theron Montgomery Building Auditorium
  2. Friday, June 8th, 8:30 am - Theron Montgomery Building Auditorium
