Veteran Services

Our team is committed to creating a community of support for veterans, active-duty service members and their families.

PNW Veteran Services should be the first destination for any active-duty service member, veteran or veteran dependent.

We strive to provide the best assistance to those who serve, ensuring that transitioning from the military to higher education is seamless and as stress free as possible.
