Student Veteran Support Program (SVSP)
We know that the transition from military to civilian life brings unique challenges. The Student Veteran Support Program (SVSP) is designed to give current or post service students the tools and support they need to achieve success throughout
their studies and into employment. The SVSP is open to individuals who have completed or are completing a specific term of military service in either the army, air force, or navy, as well as those in the reserves. Family members, and students
with international military service are also encouraged to apply.
If you have a disability or long-term condition that impacts upon your studies, we offer support, special consideration, and flexible options such as exams deferral and online or part-time study.

Veterans Transition Program (VTP)
We support commencing student veterans as they transition from the military service to ACU through a free two-week preparatory program. Through tailor-made orientation activities, workshops, lectures, tutorials, and different types of assessments,
the Veterans Transition Program (VTP) equips students with the abilities and key skills to succeed in higher education, develop self-efficacy, a sense of belonging and expanded peer networks.

Support and initiatives
As part of ACU’s commitment to supporting current and ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF), we are constantly trying to further expand our services. Together with the Australian Student Veteran Association (ASVA) we are developing a tertiary credit mapping framework to enable ADF veterans to have their service record assessed for Credit for Prior Learning when entering and undertaking university-level studies, this was made possible through the Supporting Younger Veterans (SYV) grant awarded to ACU and ASVA.
