Please do not hesitate to call, email, or stop by!

VA Mobile Medical Center

The VA Mobile Medical Center visits the WSU campus one day each month (see the events calendar on the main veterans page for dates) The mobile center is capable of enrolling Veterans into the VA medical system, providing initial physicals, and conducting routine medical services. The service is provided by appointment only. Please contact Lena Young with the Spokane VA hospital to make an appointment - (509) 724‑8320, lena.young@va.gov.

Resident Tuition

There are many circumstances under which veterans, active duty members, WA National Guard members, dependents, and spouses are eligible for the resident tuition rate. Please reference our military residency page for further details.

Priority Registration

Veterans, Active Duty members, Reservists, National Guard members and spouses of the aforementioned, receive priority registration for classes at WSU during Fall and Spring semesters. You will never have to worry about that one class you need filling up before you can get to it!

Tuition Assistance

The Tuition Assistance (TA) program pays the cost of tuition and some additional fees. Nearly all active duty service members are eligible for TA. However, each service branch determines eligibility criteria that often reduce access. Tuition Assistance covers up to 100% tuition and fees, not to exceed $250.00 per semester credit hours or $4,500.00 per fiscal year.

All Active Duty Service Members (including Guard and Reserve) must contact their Education Service Officer (ESO) or Education Counselor within your branch of service prior to enrolling in any college or university.

Tuition Assistance Application Procedures for Military Services:

Academic Success and Career Center

Receive academic counseling, find out more about tutoring and learning strategies, and help to develop your study skills. You may also receive assistance in developing your educational goals, help in deciding a major, choosing a new career, or even job search counseling.

The ASCC also provides Veteran-specific career counseling during walk-in hours at the Student Veterans Center. Their hours are 2-4pm, Tuesday and Wednesday. Services include resume/cover letter writing and review, interview prep, career counseling, job search strategies, and more.

Survivor Benefit Hotline for GI Bill Beneficiaries

The Department of Veterans Affairs' Education Service now has a dedicated phone line for GI Bill beneficiaries who are the surviving spouse or child of an active duty service member who died in the line of duty and need assistance with their education benefits. A child or surviving spouse can contact the Education Call Center at 1-888-442-4551 and select Option 5. A highly trained agent with specialized training in survivor benefits will be ready to assist the caller with their education benefits or survivor-related resources.
