VetSuccess On Campus

In August of 2013, the Department of Veterans Affairs and Austin Peay State University acknowledged that the successful readjustment of Veterans into college and the civilian workforce is a critical and mutual responsibility. As a result, they signed a Memorandum of Understanding to address the needs of Veterans, Active Military, and Family Members and to assist them in achieving their educational and employment goals. This partnership allowed the VA to place an experienced Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor on campus full-time. The VetSuccess on Campus Counselor provides the support needed to improve the chances for their success with academics and long-term career goals.

VetSuccess On Campus at APSU is a comprehensive program offering adjustment counseling, support services, career counseling, peer to peer mentoring and tutoring, employment assistance, and guidance on the full range of VA benefits and health services available to you. In a collaborative and cooperative effort, APSU and VA work together to develop highly innovative and targeted transitional programs, services and activities for student Veterans, Active Military, and their Family Members. This dynamic program eases their transition to college life and helps to maximize their opportunities for success, both educationally and occupationally.
