We See the Future in You.

We salute you and your service to our country. As an active duty servicemember or veteran, you understand duty and commitment. At Norfolk State, we have dedicated and committed professors who will work with you to reach your goals.

  • Study wherever service takes you: NSU offers classes online, at several military facilities in Hampton Roads or in a hybrid format.

  • Take command of your benefits: The Veterans and Military Services staff specializes in helping military and veteran students get started with education benefits.

Academics- Assistance in enrollment, certifications, tutoring, benefits, tuition, and transfer credits, etc. We connect you with an existing student veteran who has experienced all of the roadblocks in their educational pursuits. 

Transition- Assistance with tangible support programs including disability services and referrals; provide logistical and financial support services and/or referrals to minimize stress. 

Reintegration- Providing an experienced veteran, who serves as a liaison, to help bridge the gap from active duty to civilian life and to acclimate to the academic culture.

(My experiences) provided me with a great deal of humility, which has helped to positively shape me into the person I am today."
