Southern Illinois University Edwardsville appreciates the service and sacrifice that veterans have selflessly given to the citizens of our state and nation, and is deeply committed to providing programs and services that convey our gratitude and commitment to these women and men.
Veterans enrolled at SIUE avail themselves daily of the many services offered to students, including Disability Support Services, Counseling and Health Services and academic support services. A veterans-initiated group, The Cougar Veterans Association, has provided opportunities for SIUE veterans to meet, and has served as a sounding board for issues specific to veterans. As SIUE enrolls more veterans, the University anticipates that this group will become increasingly active.
Key services and benefits available to veterans are listed on the left, and contact information regarding these services is listed to the right.
