Serving Those Who Have Served

Whether you’re planning to attend the University or are currently enrolled, the assistance center can help you navigate the processes – and the paperwork – often required to tap into the benefits you’ve earned by serving our country.

familyCenter staff can help you determine whether you’re eligible for the GI Bill, scholarships, disability services, personal counseling, tutoring, financial aid and other college-related services. They can provide assistance to your family.

Besides connecting with resources, you will find that the center is also a great place to connect with others. Stop by the center to grab a cup of coffee, study or chat with other veterans.

To learn more about the help available to you as a veteran, stop by the Veteran’s Assistance Center located at 216 Sanford Hall or call 218-755-2230.

Bemidji State University and the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs cooperatively created and administer the Veteran’s Assistance Center.
