Veterans Network

Support Services

We want you to succeed. That's why we have programs designed to help you make the most of your education, from your application and earliest days on campus through graduation and the next phase of your life.

Our Student Academic Success Center provides academic support services and advising for those who have not identified an academic program of study (or major); our Counseling Center offers support services to assist with your transition to college and civilian life. Finally, our Career Center is ready to guide you into non-military employment in the private and public sectors.

The following individuals have been designated as primary contacts for student veterans. Please feel free to request assistance from these individuals but be assured that others can assist if she/he is not available.
