The resources offered by Arizona State University, the Pat Tillman Veterans Center and many other agencies and organizations go beyond academic support. We are here for you with the tools you need to achieve and maintain a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle, while you pursue your degree and after you graduate.
Below you will find a list of ASU tools, resources and support services to help you succeed during your ASU experience. Additionally, you’ll find multiple non-ASU advocacy resources that can provide you with financial resources, health care, employment support, food security and more.
Whatever obstacles you may encounter, you won’t face them alone — we will face them with you. The PTVC is here to support you and offer you a sense of community.
