Veteran Services

At UGF, we understand that veteran students are not the same as traditional students coming out of high school, which is why we have many programs and resources to help you navigate the system and succeed on campus.

 

Veteran Mentor Program
This student-initiated program connects incoming veteran students with a peer mentor who can help them successfully navigate campus.

 

DVA Education Benefits Program

The Financial Aid Veterans Coordinator is familiar with all of the state and federal benefits programs and can help you select the right program for you, apply and make sure you’re getting the most out of your benefits program.

  • Applying for Benefits
  • Benefits Programs
  • Supplemental DVA Education Benefits
