Veterans Affairs Staff PhotoWelcome to the Northeast State Office of Veterans Affairs! The role of this office is to serve the educational needs of prospective and enrolled service persons, veterans, their dependents/survivors, and other persons eligible to receive education benefits under various Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) programs. We strive to administer these programs in an exemplary manner by providing program information and advising, certifying eligible students, and serving as a liaison between the student and the DVA.

All degree and certificate programs (with the exception of the Entrepreneurship Certificate) at Northeast State for which credit hours are awarded are approved for the enrollment of veterans and persons eligible to receive VA education benefits.
