ONLINE SUPPORT FOR BOISE STATE’S MILITARY AND VETERAN STUDENTS
With dedicated personnel and programs designed specifically for the unique needs of past and present military members, Boise State is proud to support those who dedicate their time in service to their country. Our online options are a great fit for active duty students who need additional flexibility to match demanding and, at times, unpredictable schedules. We want you to be able to complete your degree from anywhere in the world–wherever you are.
For additional support with testing, course prep and tuition assistance, Boise State programs are here to help:
Flex Military Programs
Boise State is committed to removing barriers and providing higher education opportunities to military servicemembers, their families, Department of Defense (DoD) employees and all veterans furthering their educational goals. The Boise State Extended Studies Flex Military Programs is proud to continue a 65-year partnership with Idaho’s military community and servicemembers deployed across the world.
Through flexible outreach centers at Mountain Home Air Force Base and Gowen Field, servicemembers, dependents, civilians and veterans can connect with on-site support services–including advising and registration, connections to additional academic resources and testing services. Testing options include proctored exams, CLEP, DSST and more.
Veterans Upward Bound
The Veterans Upward Bound program is one of the TRIO programs on the Boise State campus housed under the Center for Multicultural and Educational Opportunities in the College of Education. Veterans Upward Bound is a FREE pre-college program that helps Veterans prepare to return to their school or program of choice. Veterans Upward Bound offers classroom instruction for basic skills improvement, online math programs, career interest inventories and assistance with the admission and enrollment process of their school.
Through Veterans Upward Bound, veterans can participate in free refresher programs in math, reading, writing, basic computer skills, beginning Spanish, science and several special topic workshops. Most veterans are eligible for this program, and a minimum of 125 vets are served per year. Classes are small, last 6 weeks, and are offered in Boise with some options online. In addition, math classes are offered in Nampa on the College of Western Idaho campus.
The key to transitioning to university life from the military and utilizing any VA educational benefits (if applicable) is interacting with the Veterans Services Office. The Veteran Services office provides information and procedures relevant to all of the education benefits provided through the Department of Veterans Affairs and can help you use any GI Bill® VA educational benefits for which you’re eligible. If you have questions, the staff in Veteran Services will have answers. The staff can help you navigate through any and all processes and are experienced in helping students from a distance over the phone, through email or using resources found on their website.
