UIU Military and Veterans Service Center


The Military and Veterans Service Center (MVSC) provides assistance to military and veteran students and family members in navigating admission, enrollment and financial aid processes. Led by the Director, the Military & Veterans Service Center is the primary campus advocate for military and veteran students, and works with them to ensure their unique needs are met by coordinating with offices of various university services. The Military & Veterans Service Center provides assistance in coordinating with academic advising, tutoring, counseling, disability accommodations, veteran programming, benefits information, financial aid, medical and additionally facilitates referral to state and federal resources and services.


That Upper Iowa University will be the university of choice for military personnel, veterans and their families by being one of the most military and veteran friendly universities in the nation that postures the military and veteran student and other members of the Total Military Family for success from active service, through academics, beyond graduation, to employment.

  • We have a GROWING military and veteran student population.
    • In the summer of 2014 the National Guard established a military partnership with Upper Iowa University.
    • There is a National Guard office on the Fayette campus.
  • 17% of our students are active duty service members or veterans.
  • We need a virtual and physical “hub” for veteran students that supports all of their transitional needs.
  • UIU’s military constituents deserve a director that is dedicated full time to advancing the programs, processes and services for veteran students.
  • Upper Iowa University will be more likely to receive grants that are particularly geared toward projects such as the MVSC or veteran service improvements.
  • A service center will encourage collaborations with local, state, and national veteran-support organizations.
  • Provide a services to the surrounding communities through MVSC programs and Veteran’s Club efforts.
