The transition from soldier to student, from combat to campus, is often a difficult one. At UT, our goal is to create an environment where student veterans can thrive in areas of academia, leadership, and connectedness. By facilitating this intentional support, VSC extends learning beyond the classroom, builds community, and provides transformative experiences.

The Veterans Success Center (VSC) offers assistance and guidance to:

  • Active duty service members
  • Veterans
  • Reservists
  • Guardsmen, and family members using their VA educational benefits.

The VSC works collaboratively with multiple campus partners to provide programs and opportunities to bridge the gap from military service to higher education to job obtainment, and ensure veteran success both in and out of the classroom.

You have served your country, let us serve you!
