SIU Veteran Services

Best for Vets AwardSIU has a long history of serving
those who serve. 

We were one of the first Universities to begin offering degree programs on military installations, and now we offer online programs as well.  We host Air Force and Army Reserve Officer Training Corps programs on campus, and we a have a student group which is a chapter of the national organization, Student Veterans of America.


We offer transition services to assist military members in making the switch to the academic environment.  Tutoring, evaluation of Joint Service Transcript for appropriate award of equivalent course credits, degree choice and career counseling, accommodations for diagnosed disabilities and assistance in obtaining GI Bill® and other veteran educational benefit programs are all available to both on- and off-campus students.
