Veterans Initiatives and Outreach
UMUC's Office of Veterans Initiatives and Outreach helps ensure veterans receive the resources, support, and advocacy they need to succeed in transitioning after the military, earning a degree, and starting a successful civilian career.
If you have questions about the resources available in the Veterans Resource Center, or if you have any suggestions about resources to add, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Veterans Certification Office
Using your veterans education benefits at UMUC is seamless. The dedicated Veteran Certification Office at University of Maryland University College processes your paperwork for education benefits quickly and efficiently, and we work in accordance with federal and state regulations so you can stay focused on earning your degree.
After you've followed the steps to apply at UMUC and registered for classes, you'll need to complete the Request for Certification Form through MyUMUC, the online home of your student account.
UMUC works directly with the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide information about the classes you're taking. We certify to the VA that you are on track with your program and all courses you're taking are applicable to your degree plan.
You also can make changes to your benefits and monitor the processing of your benefits through MyUMUC.
UMUC is introducing a digital communication and networking tool exclusively for UMUC's military and veteran community. It will provide a central place for you to get the support you need to make a successful transition to civilian life. You can access timely, relevant information about academic success and career opportunities, connect with fellow UMUC students who've served in the military, work with our military and veterans advisors, and more.
This tool is available to all transitioning military who are planning to separate within the next two years as well as veterans. To enroll in MIL-VET Checkpoint, please send your name, and contact information to email@example.com.
The VRC will confirm your status as a current student and enroll you into MIL-VET Checkpoint.
