Veteran Success Classes

ASU offers veteran success courses to help aid in academic success, university integration, resource management and transitional support.

Student Success for Veterans (LIA 294)

Student Success for Veterans (LIA 294)

ASU offers a veteran-specific introductory course — Student Success for Veterans (LIA 294). The objective of the course is to forge positive relationships among a small network of veterans for the common purpose of academic success, university integration, resource management and transitional support.

Designed for the student veteran, the course provides an outstanding opportunity to get to know other veterans and to learn about various resources available from ASU, the state of Arizona and the Department of Veteran Affairs. See what fellow student veterans have to say about this course: 

“If you are a veteran in need of an orientation class, then you have no business taking the regular ASU orientation course. Do yourself a favor and take LIA 294; it will put you at a running start for successful and expedient graduation.” Kenny Chiaghana, Marine Corps

One of the most stressful events is transitioning from one part of life into another. The Student Success for Veterans course was a great opportunity to be around other veterans and learn about all the different opportunities available to be successful here at ASU.” Michael Hutchinson, Marine Corps
