Centers of Excellence for Veterans

Veterans Educational Transitions Success Center (VETS)

The Veterans Educational Transitions Success (VETS) Center at SNU serves as a single point of contact to coordinate veteran student support services on campus for both graduate and undergraduate students. Support services will assist veteran students in transitioning to campus life, including orientations, academic and career counseling, and connecting to community support. The VETS Center serves traditional, Professional Studies, and graduate student veterans.

 SNU accepts ACE credit for military training and experience, and all of SNU’s educational programs are VA approved.

 SNU participates in the VA’s Principles of Excellence Program and endorses the President’s 8 Keys to Veterans’ Success. We are a Post-911 G.I. Bill Yellow Ribbon Program participant and were named a 2015 Military Friendly School® by Victory Media.
