The University of West Florida is proud of its many students who have and are currently serving in our Armed Forces and understands the added demands that service can bring. The Military and Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) is here to help you ensure that your service has minimum disruption on your education.
Before you deploy, bring a copy of your orders to our office located in the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Building 38 , Room 147. If your deployment means you must miss classes or withdraw from the University, the MVRC will ensure that the proper arrangements are made here at the University so that you can concentrate on preparing for your deployment. We will also officially notify your professors of your deployment.
Upon your safe return we will ensure that you are re-enrolled with no hassles, penalties, or fees. We'll also assist you should you need any additional assistance to get re-acclimated to the campus.
In the unfortunate event that you are injured while serving and require additional assistance, ensure that you inform the MVRC so that we may coordinate any on-campus resources. If you have a letter from a doctor outlining any special instructions to accommodate your learning, please give that letter to the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC).
To change your major you must complete a change of program form and submit it to the VA for verification, in addition to the University's requirements. The MVRC will assist you to ensure that the VA is notified in a timely manner so as not to affect your benefits.
In order to receive your VA benefits for the semester, you must complete the VA Certification, which can be done on https://my.uwf.edu/ or by coming into our office.
