Welcome Military-Connected Students

Section 1

The Veterans Services Center (VSC) provides assistance to military-connected students - veterans, reservists, National Guard, active duty, and dependents - in obtaining their U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits. The VSC is responsible for submitting certification requests for incoming and continuing military-connected students, answering questions military-connected students may have concerning their VA educational benefits, and providing resources to assist military-connected students in navigating their transition to student life at UC Irvine. 

Current Announcements 


The VSC will not be accepting Request for Certification (RFC) submissions for the 2021 Fall Quarter/Semester until a later date. We are currently working to improve the submission process for our military-connected students as we enter the 2021-2022 academic year. If you have any questions regarding RFC submissions, you can reach out to us through email at veteran@uci.edu or set up a Calendly meeting on our homepage.
