Veterans Placement Guidance and Procedures

To utilize the our services, a veteran is required to apply for eligibility. Please email the Office of Veterans Placement your eligibility documentation listed below. Soon after applying, a staff member will determine your veteran eligibility status. If found eligible, the staff member will email your Veterans Placement Eligibility Form. If it is determined that you are not an eligible veteran, then you will receive an email notification with that information.

If you are applying for a job opening and have not completed the eligibility requirement, please apply for eligibility first. Our staff will make every effort to determine your eligibility prior to supplying the candidate list to the hiring agency. 

If you are veteran seeking employment with the State of Oklahoma and cannot find a job opening, or just would like to complete eligibility for future state employment opportunities, please apply now

New job openings are posted daily. Completing your eligibility early will streamline your application process and provide peace of mind knowing your Veterans Placement Eligibility Form is complete for future use.

It is important to upload your Veterans Placement Eligibility Form when applying to each job opening. Without uploading, it is difficult to verify your eligibility and could result in a missed interview opportunity. 

The Office of Veterans Placement will determine whether you meet the minimum qualifications or not. It is imperative to add all relevant career information to your application, as resumes will not be reviewed for qualification determinations. 


Required documentation for veterans placement eligibility

The following document must be submitted to qualify for veterans placement eligibility:

  • A copy of the Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214 or 215) or National Guard Report of Separation and Record of Service (NGB Form 22 or 22A).

Note: The DD 214 or NGB 22 must state the character of service as honorable. Not all DD214 copies included the character of service. Please submit service copy 2, 3 or member copy 4.  

Veteran definition:  The term ‘veteran’ means a person who has been honorably discharged from the Armed Forces of the United States.
