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.
Complete the Request for Certification (RFC) form and/or submit your Tuition Waiver (NH Air/Army National Guard Only) to our office to establish your benefits for the semester no later than December 6th to avoid late fees. The UNH billing deadline is on December 7th.
For students using Chapter 1606 or 33 & a Tuition Waiver, you must complete the RFC and submit your waiver to receive both benefits.
Our office will be hosting another Veteran Orientation for our incoming spring 2018 students on Monday, 1/22/18. During the VET Connect orientation, you will complete many of the tasks necessary for a successful college start. It is our goal to ensure that you know where to go for financial aid, academic support, student services, athletics, recreational sports, dining services, and more.
