Admission of Veterans
Oakwood University is approved as an institution qualified to offer education to veterans under the provisions of the Veterans Readjustment Act of 1966. Veterans who have completed high school or passed the GED are admitted under regular admissions standards for freshmen. Veterans transferring must meet the requirements for transfer students.
Once enrolled, the veteran must present the Certificate of Eligibility for Educational Benefits to the coordinator of veterans affairs in the Registrar’s Office to ensure receipt of educational benefits.
Physical education/activity credit and equivalent Oakwood University credit completed while in the armed services of the United States of America will be considered for those veterans who submit official documentation of military service and educational credit earned. Credit will be determined based on the recommendations in the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services.
