UCI Veteran Services is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment for veterans, reservists, and their dependents. We provide assistance in obtaining the educational benefits to which they are entitled. The center is responsible for submitting entitlement requests for new and continuing students to the V.A., answering any questions veteran students or dependents may have concerning their educational benefits, and providing resources and programs to assist veterans in navigating their transition to civilian and student life.
