  • Laws are in place to protect student Veterans with a variety of disabilities and/or medical mental health conditions such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), hearing/vision loss, PTSD, chronic pain, and physical disabilities.
  • Student veterans may still be eligible for university disability services even if the military or VA determined they do not have a disability.
