Our Office of Military & Veterans Programs (MVP), serves military veterans and their dependents during their time as students at UAH. The MVP office assists students with applications for veterans' educational benefits to which they may be entitled as a result of their service or dependency status. While the MVP staff does not determine eligibility for assistance, they do ensure that proper paperwork is completed, certified, and filed with the US Department of Veterans Affairs. The Office of Military & Veterans Programs also offers resources for transitioning to the institution and encourages participation in programs to help students stay engaged at UAH.
