Veterans Services


Welcome to the Minot State University Veterans Center where your service to our country is appreciated! The center serves as a guide for active duty, transitioning active duty, veterans, dependents and spouses into the university education system.  The Center's office strives to ensure VA educational benefited individuals are able to put those earned benefits to use in a quality education here at Minot State University, while providing referrals to academic and financial assistance as well as to physical and mental health wellbeing support.  The Center will help veterans and their families find answers to the questions they may have about those educational benefits and how to put them to work for them.  Learn more about the benefits related to active duty, veterans, dependents and spouses, by clicking the appropriate link.  Please stop in the Veterans Center (Dakota Hall) or call (701)858-4003 with any questions.

Active Duty

Minot Air Force Base Contact

Minot State University Contact

In simple terms, the U.S. Armed Forces are made up of the five armed service branches: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. There are three general categories of military people: active duty (full-time soldiers and sailors), reserve & guard forces (usually work a civilian job, but can be called to full-time military duty), and veterans and retirees (past members of the military). And of course there are the millions of family members and friends of military members, past and present.

Each branch of the military has a unique mission within the overall mission of U.S. security and peace.
