Veteran Services Center

The Veteran Services Center (VSC) is a one-stop shop for veterans, reservists, eligible dependents and active duty military students attending UT Dallas. The VSC helps you access information about VA benefits, financial aid, scholarship opportunities and veterans support services. The center provides a veterans’ lounge that allows you to meet and greet other vets.

Military students enhance our campus community by sharing their leadership skills and strong work ethic. They also face unique challenges when transitioning to civilian and college life. It is our goal to provide the resources and support you need to be successful at UT Dallas.

Thank you for your service and welcome to UT Dallas!
