Veteran and Military Center

If you are a veteran or military-connected student, the Veteran and Military Center (VMC) at Wright State University is focused on providing a supportive environment as you transition from the military to college and from college to career.

Who We Serve

More than 700 Wright State students each semester will utilize some form of GI Bill® requiring confirmation of attendance through the VMC. There are also approximately 300 active duty or veteran students who do not utilize GI Bill benefits.

The VMC serves:

  • All U.S. Armed Services veterans. If you have put on the uniform, we serve you.
  • All active duty, reserve, and National Guard service members.
  • Transfer of entitlement, spouses, widows, and orphans of U.S. service members who are using GI Bill Benefits.
  • Vocational Rehabilitation students funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs

Services and Resources

The VMC offers a wide array of services and resources to veteran and military-connected students.

Veteran Educational Benefits

Our primary mission is to help students obtain educational benefits for which they are eligible.

Academic Programs

Wright State offers two veteran and military related academic programs:

Veterans' Voices Project

The Veterans' Voices Project is veterans encouraging other veterans to share their story. Through this project, we are able to bridge the gap and connect generations of service members and veterans and educate the public.
