The Veteran Services Office is here to serve the Fairmont State University Veteran/Dependent Students by providing benefit and educational counseling, program information, referral to various agencies, and certification of eligible students to receive education benefits under various state and federal programs while maintaining a congenial working relationship with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other agencies serving veterans.
We have a full-time Veterans Certifying Official / Financial Aid Counselor/Advocate assigned solely to Veteran students who can assist veterans with their educational benefits and financial aid. We also have an additional Financial Aid Counselor who can assist in this staff member’s absence. These staff members are very knowledgeable of all of the educational programs approved by the Veterans Administration (VA) and facilitates the process at the schools. These counselors can help veterans better understand how their benefits are applied and can assist them in applying for those benefits.
