We also feature a variety of programs and events for the entire KU military-affiliated community.

VA Benefits

We work closely with Office of the Registrar to help all students using federal and state veterans’ education benefits. We also provide VA benefits resources to help walk you through the process.

Campus and Community Outreach

In the military, we all recognized that we were only as strong as the community and support we have around us. This is also true in our post-military lives. There are a variety of ways to get involved.

Career Services

University Career Center (UCC) services for military-affiliated students are available to help develop resumes, and connect to internships and employers.
