MF '19-20 Award, Military Friendly SchoolWe are proud to have you at Fitchburg State University and we appreciate your service to our nation. Managing your educational, military and personal responsibilities can be a challenge, and we strive to provide the services and support necessary to achieve your academic goals.

How can we assist you?

Priority Enrollment

Student veterans enrolled in our daytime undergraduate programs receive priority enrollment. While registration time tickets are grouped by number of credits earned, veterans are able to register 24 hours prior to students with similar credits earned. Please note that priority enrollment cannot begin before the first day of registration for each term.

Delayed VA Payments

Under S2248 PL 115-407 Section 103, Fitchburg State University will not impose a late fee, denial of access to facilities, or other penalty against a veteran or eligible dependent due to a late payment of tuition and/or fees from the VA up to the certified benefits amount. Any portion of the student bill not covered by VA benefits is still expected to be settled by the due date.
