Veterans Resources

Winona State is proud to serve veteran students and students from military families. Each year, nearly 200 students use military benefits to further their education.

The WSU Veterans Affairs Office has an open door policy. Whatever you’re dealing with, we can help.

Our team is here to answer all your questions and be your advocate so you can get support you need to achieve your educational goals.

Veteran students are also supported through the Regional Coordinators Office for the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs and the Higher Education Veterans Programs for Southeastern Minnesota. 

These programs are both housed on the Rochester Community & Technical College campus in EA 115.
