Crossing the Finish Line to Degree Completion

STRIPES-VUB works with veterans from multiple points in their journey to higher education completion. Some walk into our office after a few years of service having never stepped foot into a higher education setting. Others started an academic program and have been on hiatus for several years. It is not uncommon to be working with a veteran who attempted a higher education program and was not able to complete to graduation. This can happen for several reasons; a poor academic fit, financial pressures, lack of passion, minimal student supports, etc. The STRIPES-VUB program is happy to partner with the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education and connect veterans with degree completion programs like the one highlighted below.

So, what are you waiting on? Did you begin a higher education program and stalled out before completion? Are you at a cross roads and need some help finding the right road map for you? Give your STRIPES-VUB program a try this next time returning to the classroom. We can help you get back on the path and ready to cross the finish line to degree completion. Outreach Specialists are available by appointment throughout the state of Oklahoma. Call 405-974-3686 or email STRIPES-VUB@uco.edu to schedule an appointment today!
