Veterans Benefits

The K-State family is proud of the service and sacrifice of our men and women in the U.S. Military. We welcome veteran students and offer you assistance and guidance through our K-State Office of Veterans Affairs. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs determines the eligibility of educational benefits for veterans of the U.S. armed forces and/or their family members. If you or your family members are eligible for veteran educational benefits, the K-State Office of Veterans Affairs will certify your K-State enrollment in order for you or your family members to receive these benefits. Students who are eligible to receive veteran educational benefits need to complete a Veterans Information Form to be considered for the benefits.

Veterans Information Form

If you are a veteran of the U.S. Military interested in educational benefits, please complete and submit this form and any additional required documentation to the address on the sheet.  This form is required to be completed every semester you wish to use your veteran educational benefit.

Military Evaluation

The K-State Office of Admissions will evaluate your military training and experience for possible college credit. A military credential evaluation is optional and has no bearing on your admission status at K-State. This evaluation does not include evaluation of transfer work from other educational institutions.
