Military Affiliated Student Resource Center (MARC)
Exclusive access to The Military Affiliated Student Resource Center. A space designed for Active Duty, Veterans, and of course their families, this is our version of an airport USO here on campus! This one of a kind space is only accessed by those with a military affiliation. The perfect place to study, relax, and get to know the other Veterans and military connected students at ETSU. Hidden gems within this center are computer usage and free printing, a full kitchen, and lounge area with T.V. and Video Games.
ETSU Veterans Affairs Golf Cart powered by TEVET!
Committed to aiding in every way, we have a six-seat golf cart that is used to support the military student. From carrying disabled vets, helping students get across campus, and most school events.
Military Affiliated Students at ETSU are one of two student groups that are provided early registration! Designed with military student in mind, this allows for specific scheduling for those that juggle a career, children, and the rigors of post-military life.
Tuition and Fee Deferment Form
One of the stand-out perks we provide is the ability to provide a Tuition and Fee Deferment Form for all Military Connected students. Extending this to those that are using benefits and those that are not allows each student the flexibility to manage their financials as well as give the VA time to pay G.I. Bill® benefits. This allows you to defer payment until the end of the semester without worrying about being dropped from your classes due to no payment.
In-House Scholarships for Military Affiliated Students
Specific scholarships for Military Affiliated Students include out-of-state tuition waivers, a scholarship for those out of G.I. Bill® benefits, Military Affiliated Child Scholarship, and the Military Affiliated Spouse Scholarship.
Understanding that those in the military are accustomed to a having a mentor or teammate. We provide just that through a very unique relationship with ETSU's incredible tutoring team. Having someone on your side with a similar background they are there with the single goal of helping make your journey through higher education as successful as possible.
