Antioch University Seattle (AUS) welcomes and supports veterans, and we value the experience and perspective veterans bring to our classrooms. Whether you are still on active or reserve duty, transferring from a community college, inquiring about one of our many graduate programs, or wanting to see how your military experience translates into credits, please don’t hesitate to visit our campus so we can show you why AUS is a match for you.
Commitment to Military-Connected Students
We value the experience that veterans bring to our school and provide opportunities for veterans to capitalize on the leadership skills they learned in the military. AUS provides veterans with classes that focus on critical reflection and transformation. We recognize that identity is not static and many veterans may be seeking to expand and reflect upon what their past experience in the military means to their future identity as a civilian.
We honor your service and offer programs that build upon your experience to give you the knowledge and skills to advance your career.
At AUS, we not only welcome the past experience of veterans, but we also provide them with unique opportunities to be active with organizations that support our focus on social justice and engaged citizenship. We have an active student veteran chapter that is connected to the largest advocacy group on behalf of student veterans, the Student Veterans of America. Our student veteran organization also recently placed 3rd in the nation for its business plan to support veterans on our campus.
Our Veteran Services department helps those who are eligible through the process of applying for GI benefits, financial aid, and enrollment.
In addition, we offer referrals to:
- Admissions counseling
- Employment resources
- Housing resources
- Mental health and family counseling
- Disability services
- Peer support
