Veteran Support Services

Veterans make up a valuable part of Terra State's student body and we offer a variety of benefits to our Veteran students. We have priority registration for Veterans (this allows you to register before the general public to ensure you get the classes you need before they fill), and provide a study lounge specifically for Veterans located on the first floor of Roy Klay Hall.

We partner with OhioMeansJob to provide additional services, accept Academic Council on Education (ACE) military transcripts, and we are a member of the Service Opportunity Consortium (SOC). We also recognize our Veteran employees and students on Veterans Day with a special event.

Please note all military, National Guard personnel, and Reservists are recognized in the same manner.

  • Academic advising
  • Assistance with your GI Bill ®
