This webpage provides information for Military Students advising them of the points of contact at Tuskegee University that will assist them with applying for and receiving military benefits.
Military students may also seek the counsel and approval of their Educational Service Officer (ESO), prior to enrolling at Tuskegee University.
Veterans Affairs within Counseling Services and the Office of the Registrar serves as liaison between Veteran students enrolled at Tuskegee University and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Counseling and support services are provided to address unique characteristic needs and problems of veterans, active duty, reservists, and dependents. While the Veteran Service Office does not determine eligibility for assistance, it does ensure that proper paperwork is completed, certified, and filed with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs so that payment of benefits can proceed.
Students receiving veterans benefits (all chapters) are responsible for the payment of all tuition and fees at the time of registration.
