NC State University is committed to excellence in developing and sustaining programs that support the experience of our current and future military veteran students and their families.  In pursuit of this goal, the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity convenes a Military Affairs Working Group monthly to discuss topics of relevance and concern to this important and growing student population.  This is done in concert with efforts to promote “Best Practices on Veteran Affairs” across the UNC System, as led by our UNC General Administration  and the UNC Partnership for National Security.

  • 1 Student Veteran - The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) is offering a new program called “1 Student Veteran” to provide direct assistance to student-veterans who are experiencing problems accessing their GI Bill or other earned benefits provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs.   Any student-veteran who is experiencing difficulty in accessing their GI Bill or other VA benefits, or believes they have been wrongfully denied these benefits, can e-mail the VFW at VFW National Veterans Service staff will acknowledge receipt of each inquiry within 24 hours during the work week, then either intervene with the VA on behalf of the student-veteran or recommend other courses of action.  Through “1 Student Veteran,” VFW and SVA will have direct access to the VA Regional Offices responsible for education claims adjudication, meaning veterans whose benefits have been denied or paid in error will not have to wait the months it would traditionally take to file a formal appeal. The new program is possible thanks to an ongoing collaboration among VFW, SVA and the VA’s Veterans Benefits Administration, which approves and administers the GI Bill, as well as claims for other VA programs and services.
