Welcome to Towson University! There are many resources available for veterans at Towson, and we've collected them in one place to make them easier to find. You have served us, and so now we want to serve you.
The Veterans Center provides educational, social and personal enrichment opportunities for the veteran community of Towson University. The Center seeks to create an enhanced learning environment by providing veteran students with support and resources in a veteran-friendly atmosphere, and by addressing the unique issues and challenges that veteran students face when entering into the university environment. Staff at the Center will assist veterans with information regarding the G.I. Bill, VA services, financial aid, and guidance through the university application and enrollment processes. The Center is staffed by the Coordinator of Veterans Services, an administrative assistant and veteran student assistants. The Veterans Center is the one-stop-shop for securing information necessary to successfully make the transition to college life.
You can learn about admissions, scholarships and other financial aid, counseling and disability support services, academic advising and—not to be forgotten—student activities. Towson has more than 100 student clubs and organizations—including one for veterans.
