Establishing a chapter at your school connects you with thousands of student veterans across the country and gives you access to tools and resources to better support fellow student veterans on your campus. In order to become a chapter of Student Veterans of America, your prospective chapter must:

     1) Recognition by your Educational Institution as an official student organization on campus.

     2) Create a governing document (i.e. constitution, bylaws, charter, etc.) that establishes how the chapter will operate.

     3) Identify three points of contact: a Chapter Leader who is a current student veteran, a Chapter Advisor who is member of            the faculty or staff, and a Chapter Email address which is specific and unique to your student veteran group.

     4) Agree with each of the statements of understanding listed at the end of this application.
