The student-veteran community at Clayton State is over 400 strong—women and men who have used their considerable skills and dedication to serve, and who are now pursuing new goals and dreams through higher education.

We consider it not only a great honor but also a great responsibility to make sure that all of our student-veterans have access to the resources and support they need to adjust to civilian life on campus and to find success in their programs. Here, you can explore those resources and support services and learn more about how to apply to Clayton State and fund your education.

Veterans Support on Campus

Supporting each other is what we do here and, as a veteran, your experience is unique among our campus community. That’s why the Veterans Resources Center (VRC), the main hub for veterans’ service on campus, offers a plethora of resources tailored to helping you succeed both in your program and as a member of the Clayton State family.

For veterans and active-duty members alike, the VRC is a place where you can connect with other service members, ask questions, and find resources for anything from financial aid information to community-support centers to campus services to employment help.

Funding Your Education

We understand that college is a large financial investment. That’s why we’ve made sure that our veterans have access to a number of avenues for financing their education, including Veterans Affairs Education Benefits, scholarships, tuition assistance programs, and loans.

Visit the Veterans Affairs section of the Office of Financial Aid to learn more.
