At Arkansas State University, it is our privilege to assist veterans in taking advantage of the numerous educational opportunities available through the GI Bill and other programs. Regardless of whether you are a new student, a returning student or transferring to our campus from another institution, we are here to help you find the resources you need to make the most out of your time at A-State.

Veterans of recent military service, and the dependents of certain other servicemen, may be entitled to educational assistance payments from the Veterans Administration. Reservists and members of the National Guard may also be eligible for monthly educational benefits.

Arkansas State University is an approved institution for veterans and veterans' beneficiaries training.

Our Veteran Affairs Representative offers the following assistance to veterans:

  • Help students apply for Chapter 30, Chapter 33/ Post 9/11, Chapter 1606, Chapter 1607, and Chapter 35. Once students apply and get their Certificate of Eligibility, the hours will be submitted to the VA for payment processing.
  • Assist with kickers, which are paid to National Guard/Reserves.
  • Evaluate military credit for college credit.
