“As an online student, my experience at Eastern Oregon University has been positive. The process of applying for Chapter 31 went seamlessly and I encountered nothing but willing assistance along the way. My VA advisor has pointed me in the right direction whenever I have encountered difficulties with class selection and registration. My academic advisors check in with me on a regular basis to make sure I have all that I need to be successful in my pursuit of a Computer Science degree. Additionally, when I had a medical situation recently, all were more than supportive and allowed me time to recover and begin work in my classes as I got better. My class instructors have been extremely helpful as well. I am currently not able to maintain a full load of classes, but there was never any discussion of me having to drop out, and I have been able to reduce my credit load to fit my situation. I have no doubt that with their continued support I will be able to fully accomplish my goal of obtaining a Computer Science degree at EOU. Much respect goes out from me to all the Veteran Advisors and Counselors who have helped me along the way.”
