Supporting-Our-Veterans-LogoWelcome! The University of Illinois Springfield is dedicated to assisting veterans in taking full advantage of educational benefits.

Veterans, active military personnel, reservists, and military dependents are a vital part of our student community and we are here to assist you in successfully completing your educational goals. Whether you are returning to the University after putting your education on hold to serve our country, are a veteran who has completed your service, or are a transfer student, our mission is to provide the best assistance possible.
