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.
  • Military Spouses—veteran or active duty—regardless of benefit status.
  • Vocational Rehabilitation students funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs
  • Army ROTC Cadets who have reached MS3 status
  • Air Force ROTC Cadets who have reached AS300 status
