UCI Veteran Services Center


Section 1


UCI Veteran Services is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment for veterans, reservists, and their dependents. We provide assistance in obtaining the educational benefits to which they are entitled. The center is responsible for submitting entitlement requests for new and continuing students to the V.A., answering any questions veteran students or dependents may have concerning their educational benefits, and providing resources and programs to assist veterans in navigating their transition to civilian and student life.

Upcoming Deadlines

For Winter 2019, we will begin accepting your Quarterly Course Enrollment forms starting Mon. November 18.

The deadline for turning in QCEs or Cal Vet letters for Fall 2019 QCEs is Dec 1st. Any late QCEs after Dec 1st can cause late VA payments to your account and/or jeopardize you being dropped from your classes (Ch: 31 – Voc Rehab & Ch: 33 – Post 9/11). If your enrollment window is after Dec 1st, still submit your QCE w/ your anticipated schedule by Dec 1st.
