Military and Veterans' Information

Military and Veterans Resource Center

The University of West Florida recognizes that many active duty military personnel face formidable barriers in the pursuit of a college degree. As part of the University’s continuing commitment to educational opportunities for military personnel, in the fall of 2011 UWF opened a center dedicated to supporting all military and veteran affiliated students, including spouses and dependents. This center is the Military and Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) (uwf.edu/mvrc) located in building 38, room 147 on the Pensacola main campus. The primary goal of the MVRC is helping military and veteran students successfully make the transition from the military environment to campus life. Transition coaches are available to assist students with GI Bill® benefits, the university process, support service, counseling and tutoring, etc. A computer center is housed within the MVRC for use by military personnel, veterans, and their families on coursework. Contact the MVRC (mvrc@uwf.edu or 850-474-2550).  

Many departments have agreed to offer degrees through a system tailored to the specific needs of active duty military personnel. Previous college credit, work experience, service schools, and other forms of nonacademic experiences will be considered for college credits. For further information, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (uwf.edu/admissions), or Graduate school Admissions (uwf.edu/graduate).
