Military and Veterans' Information

Military and Veterans Resource Center

The University of West Florida recognizes that many military affiliated and Veteran students face formidable barriers in the pursuit of a college degree. As part of the University’s continuing commitment to educational opportunities for these students, 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 to help 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®/DEA benefits,  3rd party military funding such as TA, MyCAA and EDD, the university process, support service,  mentoring and tutoring, etc. 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 and veterans. 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).
