Military and Veteran Students
The steps below are for those students who are military and veteran students that may either be attending college for the first time, transferring, or returning to the college after a period of time.
Apply for admission to the college
Your first step is to complete an admissions application. You can access the application by visiting the Online Admissions Application portal. Should you require accommodations for completing the application, please contact Disability Support Services at 859-246-6728 or toll free at 866-774-4872, extension 6728.
Setup your student account
Once you submit your admissions application, visit User Account Center to create your user profile, obtain your student ID and username, and to set your
password. This account will give you access to your student self-service (registration,
payments, financial aid, grades, etc.), e-mail, and any online courses you enroll
in. Please note that you will not have access to your student email account until
after you have registered for classes.
Submit official college and military transcripts
You will need to contact all previous colleges you have attended and request that they send your official college transcript. You are also required to submit your official military transcript. You are not admissible to the college until all documents are received. Once all documentation is received, it will take approximately two weeks to process your application. If additional information is needed, your admissions officer will contact you.
Faxed, photocopies, and scanned images of documents will not be accepted. Original documents must be provided to the Office of Admissions.
If you will be hand-delivering documents after hours, you may submit using the drop box located on the door to the Admissions Office located in room 119 of the Oswald building at the Cooper campus. The drop box is secure and checked daily for submissions.
Apply for VA benefits
Students applying for Chapter 33 Post 9/11 benefits should first complete the application online through eBenefits
and then print a copy of your application with the confirmation page and submit to
the VA Certifying Official.
Access the SEE Portal
Once your application is processed, you will receive an acceptance letter via postal mail. This letter provides instructions on accessing the SEE Portal, an online tool that will guide you through completing your enrollment. You will either be instructed to schedule an orientation or an advising appointment.
Once you are registered for classes, you will be responsible for paying your tuition
and making sure that any accepted financial aid is posted to your account. This is
done through your student account. For instructions on activating your account, please
review information located in step two above.
