NEW PROGRAM FOR VETERANS!
Veteran Student Support Services provides dedicated academic and personal support, tailored to address the unique needs of veterans who are in pursuit of a bachelor's degree from EMU. Once enrolled in the program you will meet with the Director of Veteran Student Support Services at least once per semester to review academic progress ensuring you are on the path to academic success. We will guide you through the resume building process and help you translate your military career into marketable skills you can utilize in your civilian career. You will be given a student coach who will help connect you with advisors in your field of study and introduce you to campus activities. You will also meet with a Veteran's Resource Representative who can help you navigate through the VA Healthcare system, as well as, other available benefits you may not find on your own.
