The Office of Veterans Affairs wants to to assist our Student Veterans with resources to help them be successful in their college careers.  The Ball State University Veteran Resources Guide is designed for Student Veterans and family members to inform them about the numerous student resources on campus and other related topics.  Also, please refer to the On Campus and Off Campus sections below for additional veterans resources available.
