Office of Veterans Programs
Effective Summer 2015, all eligible veterans and dependents receiving Chapter 33, Chapter 35 or Fry Scholarship benefits will be eligible for in-state tuition regardless of residency. If you are a veteran and you are not using GI bill benefits, please contact your campus Certifying Official to determine requirements to establish eligibility for the in-state rate.
Penn State's Faculty Senate has approved priority registration for honorably discharged student veterans of the United State's Armed Forces, Reserve, and Guard. This benefit must be requested by submitting a completed "Veterans Priority Registration form" found on the Online Forms section of our website.
The Office of Veterans Programs at the University Park campus is organized as a comprehensive, direct service unit for veterans and Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) benefits recipients. The office is staffed by five full-time professionals and approximately twenty student veterans who work part-time under the provisions of DVA work-study. The staff and students provide services in three major areas: Outreach, Certification, and General Counseling.
