Student veteran services

Become a part of a community even before your first day on campus. You’ll have support across the whole journey, from the application and enrolment process to study support, resources and access to events tailored to student veterans.

Entry, recognition and enrolling

As a veteran, your pathway into higher education will be a little different to those of people who apply straight from school or come from industry. ACU provides a unique entry pathway for veterans. Understand how we calculate your entry score and the steps you will need to take to apply and enrol.

Scholarships and grants

ACU offers scholarships and grants created especially for our veteran students and their families. While some provide general financial assistance, others provide specific assistance for things like overseas study opportunities or textbooks and study materials.
