Veteran and Military Students

Military StudentThe University of New Mexico is classified as a Military Friendly School and Online Education at UNM presents a valuable opportunity for Veterans and Active Duty Military personnel to pursue and finish their degrees. Veterans need to be aware of guidelines to ensure their educational success and maintain eligibility for benefits.

The UNM Veterans Resource Center provides support to student veterans in an atmosphere that provides commitment, respect, and academic excellence.

Veterans accessing their benefits must have their class schedule approved by a certifying official at the campus Veteran's Resource Center. Any schedule changes during the term should be discussed with your certifying official.

Online courses are a great tool for balancing course work and personal commitments. However, a 100% online schedule will impact your housing allowance benefit. Please contact the VRC for clarification.

Active Duty Military personnel must work with his/her duty station's Education Officer regarding access to Military Tuition Assistance. Then a UNM Advisor can assist you in meeting your academic goals, including information about admission, registration, and degree plans. The UNM Advisor serves as the Military Liaison for all branches of the U.S. Military.
