Stetson University would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your military service and welcome you, your eligible dependents and spouses to our university community. Veterans Services is your one-stop resource for finding assistance with any issues, concerns or questions.
Stetson University is a military-friendly school and is a proud member of G.I. Jobs' Military Friendly Schools.
For those who are interested in enrolling in a traditional undergraduate program of study, your first step is to visit the Office of Admissions. If you have no earned college credits from an accredited institution, you will need to apply as a first-year student; otherwise, you will need to apply as a transfer student.
Financial Aid Opportunities
Stetson University participates in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Educational Benefits Programs. The Office of Student Financial Planning coordinates verification with the Office of the Registrar and submits the appropriate forms. Current VA programs are as follows:
- Chapters 30, 31, 35, 1606, 1067
- Post-911 GI Bill (Ch. 33)
- The Yellow Ribbon Program
Please note that any scholarship provided by Stetson University (academic, talent or athletic) will be applied toward tuition and fees.
If you already have a bachelor's degree and would like to continue your education, Stetson University offers numerous graduate programs in the areas of business, counseling, education, English and law. Each has its own application process, and the financial aid options are different from those available to undergraduates. Each program's website includes contact information to find answers to these questions and more.
Continuing Education Opportunities
The Office of Continuing Education offers a wide variety of educational courses, programs, seminars and workshops designed to help you expand your education by learning new skills that will help you to take control of the course of your career.
