Military & Veteran Affairs

Marshall University recognizes the service and sacrifice of those who have answered the call to defend our nation’s freedoms. As fellow military, veterans, and dependents, we are here to be your comrades and your advocates. Whatever your needs, we want to be your go-to place for all your needs as a service member or dependent.

When you contact us, we will help you apply for VA educational benefits. If you need a place to relax and study, stop in the Veterans Lounge. Let us help you learn study skills and perfect time management techniques. Even if you just want a place to talk to someone who understands; we are here for you.

As part of the Veterans Upward Bound Program, we offer individualized assistance with FAFSA, admission paperwork, and registration. For help transitioning to civilian and college life, the Veterans 4 Veterans student organization offers a network of vets who help one another on and off campus. Other resources include:

  • Assessment & Referrals to appropriate academic support services
  • Yellow Ribbon Program
  • VA Work Study Information
