It’s an Honor to Serve You

At the University of Montevallo, it is our honor to serve our veterans, current service members, and their families. We welcome you to study with us to begin the next chapter of your life and offer our assistance in navigating the use of educational benefits you have earned. We work closely with members and veterans of the armed forces, Reserves, and National Guard, as well as their dependents and spouses to provide the best educational opportunities and support available.

With our mission to provide, facilitate, and coordinate programs and services that support our military-related students, the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs complements the University’s overall mission of assisting students in the pursuit of self-defined success.
