U Of L Opens New Offices For Veterans, Transfers

The University of Louisville is touting its new offices for veterans and transfer students.Both offices previously existed, but U of L has moved them into one renovated facility. More than 1,500 students transfer to U of L each year, and there are about 700 veterans currently enrolled.More than 100 of those veterans are on the new GI Bill, which passed in August. And Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Ken Lucas says the school can expect more veterans to enroll on the bill."The benefits are quite good," he says. "And I think that any veteran who would like to get an education certainly has the financial road block removed."The new offices cost about $225 thousand for renovations and staff.

Gabe Bullard is the director of news and editorial strategy.
