Veterans Services

Cedar Rapids Main Campus
2026 Iowa Hall

Kirkwood is committed to serving those in the community who have served or are serving in the military. Almost all programs are approved by the Department of Education for payment of Department of Veterans Affairs educational benefits. The Veterans Services Coordinator/School Certifying Official is a full-time staff person who is available to assist veterans in the application process to ensure the students’ programs meet federal guidelines.

As another service to student-veterans, Kirkwood offers a Veterans Lounge, available to all veterans and their dependents. The lounge is open during regular college hours. Located in 2004 Iowa Hall, the Veterans Lounge provides a spot to check emails, quietly study or just enjoy camaraderie with fellow veterans.
