Veterans and Military Connected Students

Student Veteran in Class

Welcome to Texas State University

Texas State University is ranked nationally for its collaborative efforts to create an affirming, supportive and military-friendly institution. It is our honor to collectively serve veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country.

The Veterans and Military-Connected Students' website offers a one-stop approach to connecting veterans, military-connected students, and families to resources and opportunities. We encourage you to review each section for information pertinent to your transition from Becoming a Bobcat to Now a Bobcat and Always a Bobcat.
