At UNC Greensboro, we are committed to serving those who have served. Veteran students are a very important part of the UNC Greensboro community, and we strive to make the transition from military service to veteran student as easy as possible. We understand the unique challenges veteran students face when returning to the classroom, but also the tremendous benefits veteran students provide to our campus.
Assistance is available to all veteran, active duty servicemember, and military-affiliated or dependent students through the Veterans Resource Center and other resources on campus. We strive to provide specialized customer service to members of the various branches of military service, veteran students, and their eligible dependents. Specifically, our staff serve as advocates for students by providing information about the University and assisting with Veteran’s Administration (VA) programs and certification. The VA Certifying Official for UNC Greensboro acts as liaison between the University and the regional VA offices to provide information on University procedures, and to resolve problems regarding eligibility and payment of VA benefits.
UNC Greensboro also designates representatives from many offices around campus what have received additional training to support our veteran students. These contacts are more familiar with the needs of veteran and military-affiliated students, and are excellent resources. The Veteran Resource Center staff is available to assist you with any needs you may have.
Through this site, we highlight services and opportunities available to our veteran and military community.

As quoted from G.I Jobs, “Schools that have earned the elite Military Friendly® designation have demonstrated a commitment to supporting student veterans on campus and in their careers.” UNC Greensboro has also been recognized by Victory Media as a Military Friendly school, and as a “Top College or University” by Military Advanced Education & Transition. We strive to support veteran students in all that we do, and are proud of the recognition these veteran publications provide.
