We are dedicated to fostering a sense of community and to develop a channel of communication among veteran and reservist students, and with faculty, staff and administration. This website provides information on financial, medical and other university resources to assist student veterans transitioning to campus life.

The University of Maine’s VETS Office serves student veterans as they apply to, attend and advance beyond UMaine. The Veterans Office connects student veterans with the resources they need to successfully transition from combat to classroom to career. This includes help navigating the admissions process, applying for financial aid and U.S.  Department of Veterans Affairs education benefits, academic assistance and preparing to re-enter the workforce. The veterans office is located in Room 143 of the Memorial Union .
