Military and Veteran Services

The Office of Military and Veteran Services is committed to serving military-affiliated students so they can succeed academically, utilize their military benefits efficiently, and connect with military-affiliated alumni as they grow into a career where they can be world-leaders.

About Military and Veteran Services

Our office provides support and resources to military veterans, active military members, ROTC cadets, and the parents, children, and spouses of service members.

Our Staff

We provide a space and dedicated staff to help military-affiliated students and families through every step of the college journey.


Along with help navigating military benefits, we serve as a bridge between military dependents, spouses, veterans, and active duty service members to the broader Bethel community. We help with the transition to college as military-affiliated students and their families navigate their unique needs and challenges of the college experience.
