Veterans Resource Center
OUR MISSION: We are a dedicated, service driven organization, acting as a valuable resource, providing a welcoming and compassionate environment, in which to serve all military-affiliated students of Auburn University.
Located in 217 Foy Hall, the Auburn University Veterans Resource Center (VRC) helps students make the transition from military life to civilian life. Whether you are a new student who has completed your service, a student who interrupted your education to serve, or a student who began your studies elsewhere and are transferring here, we will help guide you to the resources you need to make the most of your AU experience.
Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions or concerns at (334) 844-8167 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
ATTENTION: Receiving Federal VA Benefits does not automatically qualify an active duty service member, veteran, or dependent for in-state tuition, residency, or a waiver. The Post 9/11 GI Bill® pays resident tuition and fees only! To see if you are eligible for a waiver, please call our office 334-844-8167.
You should have received some communication from the VA regarding your benefits in light of the current situation. We have been in contact with our VA State Approving Agency to confirm the impact of moving to online course delivery on your mothly benefit payments. For those using Post 9/11-Ch.33, or being paid the Post 9/11 rate under VR&E-Ch.31, there will be no change to your rate for the remainder of Spring 2020. For all other benefit types, your pay will remain the same as your benefit rate does not vary with course delivery method.
We are continuing to monitor guidiance from the VA and remain in contact with our local resources. As any updates become available we will share them as soon as possible.
The Auburn Warrior Orientation and Learning program (A.W.O.L.) is a veteran-specific orientation for incoming student veterans.
A.W.O.L. is not required and does not take the place of Camp War Eagle or S.O.S.. Instead, this program is simply an additional resource for incoming student veterans as it is designed to assist with the transition from military life to civilian and university life.
Here at the Auburn University Veterans Resource Center (VRC) we understand that navigating campus as an incoming student can be challenging. During this program, incoming student veterans will receive information about student life, where important buildings are located and of course where to eat. In addition, incoming student veterans will print off their schedules and a member of the Auburn Student Veteran Association (ASVA) will show them where his or her classes are. All of this is done to ensure that student veterans are not lost on their first day of class.
This half-day program will take place each semester during the first week classes. An informational email will be sent out to all student veterans during this time and those that RSVP will receive further information about dates, times, and locations.
You have served your country faithfully, now let us serve you!
