Guidance for Student Veterans and Military-Connected Students at UAGC
Veterans Education Success has been contacted by student veterans and other military-connected students attending the University of Arizona Global Campus seeking guidance about their options. We, along with two other veterans’ service organizations – Service to School and the Warrior-Scholar Project – are providing individual guidance to interested students.
In addition, we have identified several highly reputable public institutions with excellent online programs and traditions of serving veterans and military-connected students as potential venues where interested students may wish to complete their programs using VA or DoD benefits.
Service to School
Service to School (S2S) is offering free individualized guidance to UAGC military-connected students in selecting a college and applying for transfer. S2S provides free college and grad school application guidance, helping veterans gain admission to the best college for them while empowering each veteran to make informed decisions about their education.

WSP is a nonprofit that offers workshops tailored to address the unique needs of veterans. All programming is provided at no cost. Contact: Lisa Stein at email@example.com.
Veterans Education Success

Several excellent online universities are available for UAGC student veterans to transfer to.
Students should be careful in selecting a new school. Students should avoid schools that use high-pressure recruiting tactics or attempt to rush them into making a decision.
