VETS Program at SNU

Veterans Educational Transitions Success Center

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. 

VETS Program

SNU's VETS program is one of thirteen Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success (CEVSS) established this year through a U.S. Dept. of Education FIPSE grant awards to support student veteran success in college.

SNU accepts ACE credit for military training and experience, and all of SNU’s adult educational programs, including Professional and Graduate Studies, are eligible to use with VA Educational Benefits.

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 have been named a Military Friendly School® by Victory Media every year since the VETS inception in 2015.

The Veterans Educational Transition Success (VETS) Center is an all-inclusive center designed to assist Veterans in transitioning from the military to civilian life through educational and personal success.


The vision of the VETS Center is to develop Southern Nazarene University as the University of Choice in the Oklahoma City Metro Area for all military personnel, Veterans, and dependents. The VETS Center strives to assist military and Veterans with support in all areas of their lives as they transition to civilian life. The VETS Center will provide help along the journey from enrollment through graduation, encouragement from all faculty, staff, and support from community and church involvement. SNU continues to believe in our Veterans, their goals, and their future as a positive role model in the community.

The VETS Center offers support with tutoring, disability services, counseling, resume building, career services, and other services to help all Veterans as they make the transition to civilian life through education.
