Veteran & Military Student Resources

Dunwoody College is a proud participant with the Yellow Ribbon ProgramDunwoody College has a long history of helping veterans gain the skills necessary to transition to a civilian career. Our hands-on, applied approach tends to be familiar and valuable to those who have received military training. The College has also played a role in training citizens for military service during time of war.

More than 8 percent of our current students are veterans.

Support Services for Veteran and Military Students

Veteran & Military Student Center

The College’s Veteran & Military Student Center is located in Black 34. Veteran and military students are welcome to stop by for resources, study and fellowship.

A focal point in the Center is a banner, which was the idea of currently serving students. The banner displays the unit patches of veteran and military students. If you would like to add your patch to the banner, please contact Kelli Sattler, Dean of Students, at

Dunwoody Veteran & Military Student Organization

The Dunwoody Veteran & Military Student Organization’s mission is to provide true and unwavering support for current service members and veterans.

The organization meets monthly during the academic year. If you’d like to be involved, there’s no formal need to join – simply show up at one of the monthly meetings.

In addition to the Veteran and Military Student Organization, Dunwoody has a Veterans Affairs Team, which oversees the College’s continuing efforts to support its Veteran students. The Veterans Affairs Team is comprised of representatives from Marketing, Admissions, Student Success, Student Services, and Academic Administration.

If you have feedback or ideas for the team, please contact Kelli Sattler at
