Welcome and thank you for making the extraordinary decision to serve our country. Military and Veteran Services (MVS) is the office to go to for any student using an educational benefit that is related to their (or their spouse/parent) military connection. Students will make the MVS office their first choice in learning about those educational benefits and how to apply them to their college expenses. We are the primary resource within the university community for students using military benefits, information about programs offered, and to learn about opportunities such as the Student Armed Forces Association (SAFA). The MVS office plays a central role on campus in raising awareness, educating the community and being vigilant about maintaining our status as a Military Friendly Institution.
Military & Veteran Services will host VET Connect 2017, a two-day orientation just for military-connected students entering the fall 2017 semester on August 17 and 18th. Registration Required.
VET Connect starts at 8:30 a.m. on August 17 with breakfast and registration check-in, plus a welcome from the staff and students who will be with you throughout the Orientation. There will be visits to academic resource areas during the morning, and an afternoon of lunch and recreational activities hosted by Northeast Passage at the UNH Rec Center. Day 1 will end with dinner downtown and overnight accommodations for those who need to stay on campus. Day Two, August 18, will include both breakfast and lunch and will consist of a Library and Writing Center tour, IT help, financial aid check-in, and an optional tour to your specific classroom buildings. Day Two will conclude around 2:30 p.m.
Taking summer classes is a great way to finish your degree faster and receive BAH during the summer months. Just like during the academic year, any courses you take using your GI Bill must meet unfilled degree requirements.
Complete the Request for Certification (RFC) form and/or submit your Tuition Waiver (NH Air/Army National Guard Only) to our office no later than May 8th to avoid any late fees posted to your account. The UNH billing deadline is on Tuesday, May 9th.
For students using Chapter 1606 or 33 & a Tuition Waiver, you must complete the RFC and submit your waiver by the May 8th deadline.
Staff members from the Military & Veteran Services office will have a table and be available to speak with all parents and/or incoming students at the scheduled resouce fairs. We encourage you to stop by to say hello or learn more about using your benefits at UNH!
