Serving military students

The Pat Tillman Veterans Center provides support to ASU faculty and staff through workshops, consulting as needed, and connecting and collaborating with other ASU and VA resources to best serve our military and veteran students.

Military Student Community Training

Proving Grounds, our specially designed training program for faculty and staff, is an innovative approach to training university personnel on the cultural landscape of ASU’s military and veteran student community, and what to expect when supporting it.

Proving Grounds can be provided in small group or large cooperative settings, and can be time-tailored for your group. We can provide 30-minute to one-hour sessions, which are available at different locations across all of ASU's campuses. Developed by members of our team who have a combined 55 years of military experience, this is a tool to assist ASU faculty and staff in providing a transformational experience for our military-affiliated students.

If interested in scheduling a training session, please contact our Assistant Director for Outreach and Engagement, Michelle Loposky at

Military partner resources for students

ASU Registrar Residency Office

Veteran and dependent students will often need contact with the ASU Residency Office to establish their residency in Arizona in order to receive their education benefits.
Applicable petitions: Military | Veteran | Dependent 

Active duty accommodations and military activation 

ASU realizes that students may be called to U.S. military service and unable to complete a term due to these unforeseeable circumstances. If a student is called to active duty, staff in the Pat Tillman Veterans Center will assist students in completing the military activation process.

Military and veteran admission services 

All information on student veteran admission lives here. Students will find information on how to establish their education benefits, send their transcripts and get started at ASU.

Counseling Services

ASU Counseling Services offers confidential time-limited professional counseling and crisis services for all kinds of students. Military-affiliated students may need to know how to find these services.

Sexual violence awareness, prevention and response

It takes a community of care to support victims and survivors, and ASU provides a variety of reporting options, resources and educational programs to prevent sexual misconduct.

Career and Professional Development Services

Have an idea for a veteran-specific professional development event? Reach out to PTVC and Career and Professional Development Services to see how you can assist ASU’s military-affiliated population.
