Military and Veterans Affairs

Welcome! The University of Illinois Springfield is dedicated to assisting veterans in taking full advantage of educational benefits, integrating into the campus community, and graduating.

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.

“Active duty and military veterans are an important part of our UIS community. We are fully committed to identifying resources to better assist them in accomplishing their educational goals, while taking into consideration their unique experiences and skills.”

– Chancellor Whitney

Our staff will help guide the way through Veterans programs and education benefits, and provide assistance with the forms and information related to military grants and scholarships made available through the state of Illinois.
