VMC COVID-19 Service Information

The Veteran and Military Center is not currently staffed on campus due to the COVID-19 situation. We are available via email at vmc@wright.edu during the following hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

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, about 1/3 of whom are military dependents. Those not using a GI Bill may still register with the VMC to access priority registration and the VMC student Center.

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.
