Whether you are a new or returning student, our goal is to provide high-quality and affordable programs that deliver in-demand skills. Please note that education benefit eligibility is determined by either the Department of Veterans Affairs or the respective military branch for active duty or reserve members.

Samples of Veterans Education Benefits Utilized by Current Students and Alumni:

  • Chapter 33 – Post 9/11 GI Bill
  • Chapter 31 – Veterans Readiness & Employment

In addition to accepting Military Education benefits, LSU offers a free Veterans Career Advantage course. This program is designed to help veterans translate a lifetime of development within a specific skill set to civilian employment. Course material focuses on developing a personal brand, resume building, networking, and translating military service accomplishments into clear, plain language. More information can be found here
