Getting Started

St. Cloud State welcomes you and thanks you for your service to our country.

We value the qualities of maturity, dedication, persistence, responsibility and leadership you bring to our university. We'll facilitate your move from a tight-knit military community to a campus support system.

Admission Checklist

After you complete our military-connected student admission checklist, you will be set to start classes.

2: Transcripts

Request your official transcripts for previous college level coursework, including military training. Our registrar will evaluate it for transfer credit. To request your military transcript (Army, Navy, Marine Corps., Coast Guard) visit Joint Service Transcript. Visit the community college of the air force for this transcript.

3: Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA)

Even if you are using education benefits from military service, you should seek additional financial aid through FAFSA.
