Southern State is working on starting a student veteran organization and we want to know if you are a service member or veteran. Please help us gather more information by sending your name, if you are a service member (active, guard or reserve), veteran, receiving benefits, discharge status and what campus you prefer to attend to our Service Member/Veteran Liaison, Bob Hixson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Southern State is an attractive option for veterans and their families because of its affordability, program options, convenience and flexible scheduling.
If you are a veteran or a dependent of a veteran, you may qualify for educational benefits. Financial assistance for college may also be available if you have served in the military, Selected Reserve or National Guard.
