About Us

The Veteran Services Center (VSC) provides multi-faceted support for veteran and military-affiliated students, from admission through graduation, to facilitate the achievement of academic and career goals. VSC's goals are to:

  • Foster community among students during their transition to campus and civilian life.
  • Honor contributions of military service members and recognize their academic achievement.
  • Connect students to the resources, services and programs they need to be successful at UT Dallas and beyond.
  • Inform/educate the campus and area community about the military via programs, services and events.

Military-affiliated students include veterans, current military service members, military spouses and dependents, and ROTC cadets.
