Veterans & Military Services

Who we are:

Stockton University provides comprehensive support for veterans and active service members to meet their unique academic needs. A primary mission of the military and veteran’s program is to guide Stockton service members to a variety of services that may benefit them and help them to connect with one another.
 

In January of 2009 the Office of Military and Veteran Services was created and would fall under the auspices of the Office of the Dean of Students. Through this office, service members and veterans can explore their eligibility for G.I. education benefits, receive referrals to a wide range of support services and connect with their fellow veterans by becoming a part of Stockton’s Student Veterans Organization

 

One of the many challenges endured by service members returning home from war is attending college for the first time, and this transition can be even more difficult when students encounter a sudden financial hardship.  Stockton University seeks to help by providing financial support for these unexpected situations.

 

How you can help:


Make an impact and a gift today by contributing to one of our Veterans & Military priorities:

  • Stockton's "Got Your Six" fund - created to assist military students who are experiencing a hardship by providing financial assistance for meals, housing, books, and other necessities. While the GI Bill and other benefits provide for some educational expenses, service members and veterans often encounter costs that might force them to withdraw from school.  Stockton University’s “Got Your Six” fund provides up to $500 for emergencies that can compromise a student’s success.

  • Troy to Ithaca - From Troy to Ithaca: A Soldier's Journey Home, a ground-breaking pilot program to be repeated for a second time in spring 2018, incorporates a portion of that lost and much-needed recovery period in an uncommon learning environment. This program offers 20 U.S. Veteran students of Stockton University a specialized Hellenic seminar with a Greece travel component that is uniquely relevant to the veteran experience. The goal is to scale this as a national program to engage veteran students throughout the United States.
