As a member of the military community, you have needs that go beyond continuing your education. That’s why we believe it is important that you are aware of all benefits available to you. Below are links to a variety of resources available to the military community, so you can take full advantage of your benefits.

Students in forward facing locations (deployed) who experience the following issues can contact the Office of Access and Wellness or their Student Advisor for more information:
- Limited or no internet access;
- Denied access to certain websites or programs;
- Trouble accessing Course Digital Materials (electronic textbooks);
