Boise State Veteran Services brings resources to veterans and their dependents

0 106

Boise State Veteran Services provides resources and learning opportunities for Veteran students and their dependents. We help make the transition from military life to campus to civilian career.

For more than 20 years we have been providing exceptional customer service and information on GI-Bill benefits. Last year, more than 2,000 Veterans and dependents attended Boise State University, with more than 1,100 using their educational benefits.

We offer a computer lab and study area, paid VA work-study opportunities for GI-Bill recipients, and free-of-charge printer access for limited use for any Veteran or dependent, even if s/he doesn’t have GI-Bill benefit eligibility.

Future plans include a Veterans lounge, which will be under construction this summer. It will be a comfortable place to meet, relax between classes, shoot some pool, or just watch some television. Our affiliated offices:

 

VetSuccess:

In collaboration between Boise State and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, VetSuccess ensures that student Veterans receive necessary care and benefits. They provide outreach, benefits advising, career development, and other services aimed at making sure student Veterans get every opportunity to succeed in college and gain meaningful employment.

Wyakin Academy for Wounded Warriors: Enables Post 9/11 severely wounded and injured Veterans to achieve personal and professional success as business and community leaders. They offer a multi-level mentorship program that helps the student Veteran assimilate back into college life, civilian life and into a professional career.
