Military/Veteran’s Assistance

If you are on active duty in the military or are a veteran, please visit the G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery Center for America’s Veterans for more information on receiving support.

The Center for America’s Veterans provides counseling for students who are eligible for veteran’s educational benefits. The office helps students apply for benefits, provides information, and serves as a liaison between the veteran and the VA Regional Processing Office.

Students who wish to receive VA educational assistance for the first time should contact the Veteran’s Benefits Counselor, Melanie Owens at 662.325.2024 or mowens@saffairs.msstate.edu to determine which forms need to be completed.
