As a higher education institution, we aim to increase veteran employment opportunities. To help achieve this goal, Texas State's Military Crosswalk matches occupational codes from each branch of the US Armed Forces to applicable job titles in our Pay Plan.
Explore the crosswalk in the table below. For more career support information, visit our Resources website.
According to Texas Government Code, Section 656.002, state agencies are required to include occupational codes from each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces on all notices related to employment openings.
While higher education institutions are not required to provide this service, Texas State is proud to do so for veterans and active military.
The State Auditor’s Office is responsible for maintaining the official Military Crosswalk and strives to keep the crosswalk current by making updates as needed.
Due to the changing nature of classifications, there may be a delay between official publication of materials by the U.S. Armed Forces and any related modifications on our crosswalk.
For more information on occupational specialty codes, please refer to the State Auditor's Office Military Crosswalk Guide.
