The ETSU Office of Veterans Affairs

The new GI Bill has resulted in more than 1 million veterans enrolling in postsecondary education. ETSU welcomes veterans returning to school and/or beginning a degree program. There are two offices whose services relate directly to veteran student success.  The goal of the Veterans Affairs Office is to provide exemplary educational benefit programs and other supportive services to veterans' and certain veterans' dependents enrolled at ETSU.
