Taking You from Combat to Career

UC Merced has resources available to help you discover your next career.

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. Veteran Services is responsible for submitting entitlement requests for new and continuing students to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, answering questions from veteran students or dependents concerning  educational benefits, and providing resources and programs to assist veterans in navigating their transition to civilian and student life.

This site was developed in an effort to facilitate your understanding of the process required to use your veterans' educational benefits at UC Merced. 

The key to using veterans' benefits at UC Merced is communicating with the Veteran Services Office. If you don't find the information you need or have further questions, please contact the Veteran Services at veteranservices@ucmerced.edu or 209-228-2736.
