Policies and Legislation

Current legislation requires institutions of higher education to establish programs and services to support student veterans in Pennsylvania. Numerous organizations advocate for policies to ensure that veterans, service members, and their eligible family members have access to and the opportunity to succeed in higher education. The 2008 passage of the Post-9/11 GI Bill® dramatically expanded these opportunities. Federal policy makers have developed and implemented important legislation on campuses across the country. KU is in compliance with current legislation and has also adopted University policies that support military-affiliated students on campus.
