  2. Fill out the Doane VA application below or print and submit  this form.

These two documents need to be submitted to the Director of Veteran/Military Student Services. Here are your options to submit:

  • Scan / email to .  
  • Drop off a hard copy at Doane University. Make sure to put Director of Veteran/Military Student Services on it so it gets routed to them instead of your advisor.
