Boots to Suits Academics

The academic side of the Boots to Suits program is dedicated to supporting veterans' success in the classroom. Meeting academic goals and requirements are vital steps in the transition from the military to the classroom and then on to the workforce. We offer resources at CU Denver and at CU Anschutz Medical Campus including, mentor programs, tutoring, veteran-specific orientation guidance, and Student Veterans of America organizations.
