VetLink Partnerships


One unique aspect of Service to School is its VetLink Partnership program with select top universities. In this section, we will explain what the VetLink Partnership is and what it means for you as an applicant.

VetLink is a partnership between Service to School and select colleges and universities that committed to increasing veteran enrollment on their campuses.

Eligibility is limited to fewer than 10% of the more than 5000 accredited colleges in the U.S. At the top of the eligibility criteria is a graduation rate of 70% or above. VetLink partners must also spend at least 50% of their tuition and fee revenue on instructional costs. Lastly, but no less important, is demonstrated evidence of access, affordability, and success for all admitted students.

Here is the current list of VetLink partner schools.

What does this mean for you?

Through VetLink, you have the opportunity to showcase your military service and academic preparedness as part of the application process. This is accomplished primarily through the submission of the VetLink Addendum, discussed in the next chapter, but also occurs through regular conversations between the S2S team and the school’s office of admissions.

If you'd like, you can be introduced to our dedicated points of contact at each school. This allows you to talk directly to senior admissions officers and veteran services staff about the application process, learn what a competitive applicant looks like, and determine fit and suitability.

The majority of the veterans we work with do not apply to a VetLink partner school, which is absolutely fine. Regardless of your plans to apply to a partner school, you will be paired from the same pool of Ambassadors that VetLink applicants are paired with and you will have access to the same S2S team members who are assigned as VetLink Advisors. Furthermore, if we have contacts at other schools you are interested in, we will make similar introductions.
