Dear Fellow Veterans and military
It is a great privilege to
welcome you to MSU or for those who are returning, welcome back! 2017 is going
to be a great year for the Eagle Vets. The new branding for MSU is Morehead
State University: Major in You! The motto couldn’t be more
appropriate than it is for student-veterans. You have served your nation and
her people. You have dedicated your time and efforts to others- now it is time
to Major in You!
We have a great team of veteran-friendly
staff and faculty that starts at the top. MSU President, Dr. Wayne Andrews is a
Vietnam Veteran and there are numerous vice presidents and key leaders who are
veterans. Nearly every department has veterans on the staff and faculty who
know what it is like to place nation above self.
I am proud to represent you
as the Director of Military Initiatives. My purpose is to recruit and retain student-veterans
and help iron out any speed bumps along the way. I have two outstanding
partners in helping student-veterans. Jill McBride is the Veteran Advocate and
serves as your liaison for enrollment issues. She can be reached at:
606-783-5226 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our other partner is Joey Bryant. He is an expert with VA and GI Bill related
issues, and he is a fellow combat veteran. If you get an email from Joey -
please answer it immediately as it will most likely involve your pay. Joey can
be reached at 606-783-2878 or by email at email@example.com.
I am excited to meet and get
to know each of you. Feel free to come by my office in Breckinridge Hall, Room
303E, across from the LTC Alan R. Baldwin Veterans Center. You can tell me how
we’re doing, let me know how I can help you, or we can just sit and swap
war-stories. Either way, please stop by. I can also be reached at 606-783-9267
(office) or 606-356-4239 (cell). You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations on your
commitment to further your education at Morehead State University. I hope you
are as proud as I am to be an MSU Eagle
Vet, Majoring in You! 2017 is going to be great!
David J. Litteral
Director of Military Initiatives
1). Application fee waived with appropriate documentation
As a thank you for your service, MSU waives the $30 application processing fee for veterans with proper documentation (DD-214, active duty orders, certification of eligibility, ID card).
2). Priority registration
Student-veterans participate in early registration (two days prior to Advance Registration).
Your Enrollment Counselor will work with the Office of the Registrar and your academic department to provide you with appropriate credit for your military training and service.
4). No academic penalty upon deployment with proper documentation
If you are deployed or must perform service–related duties that take you away from the classroom, you will incur no academic or financial penalty.
5). LTC Alan R. Baldwin Veterans Resource Center
A study lounge and resource center for veterans is provided to current students. A great place to relax, meet with friends, research assignments, print reports and find information about veterans benefits, the center is located in 304 Breckinridge Hall.
MSU delivers classes anywhere in the world online.
7). MSU Eagle Vets – Student Veterans of American member (SVA).
You will find a strong sense of veteran camaraderie at MSU. Organizations like the Student Veteran Association (Eagle Vets) encourage student veterans and their families to get involved on campus, and will help you feel involved at MSU.
The counselors at the Morehead State University Counseling & Health Services clinic have been trained to assist our student veterans with service-related counseling and health needs in a safe and confidential environment. Additionally, the Morehead VA clinic is less than 3 miles from Morehead State's campus.
