Support Veteran Jacks

Veteran and Military Services is dedicated to your success at Northern Arizona University. We are here to assist you at every stage of your educational experience, which includes your transition from military service to integrating into the classroom and entering your professional career. 



Looking for a way to make your impact on veterans at NAU? You can make a real difference by donating to one of these funds: 

  • Veterans Student Success Center - NAU’s expanded VSC welcomes hundreds of students each year and assists with a wide range of support services. VSC staff provide both direct service and referrals to a number of campus and community resources focused on transitioning military-affiliated students to NAU, retention efforts, academic success initiatives, career development, and care related to mental and physical well-being.  
  • The W. A. Franke College of Business Veteran Student Center  - The FCB Veteran Student Center is dedicated to the recruitment, transition, retention, and career development of veterans who attend NAU's business school so that their next chapter is as seamless and rewarding as possible. This is the first veteran center of its kind nationally dedicated to a business college.
